    They, however, want no parts of him. [​IMG]

    I told him this morning that if he were nice and shared his food with them they might be a little more willing. We shall see. I was entertained for quite a while this morning watching him chase after them. He'd give up on one and move to the next. [​IMG]

    Too funny! My young silkie roo is just starting to mate...backwards, sideways, any way. The hens run from the little male-tramp. Just like your roo, he doesn't even offer them dinner first. My older roo's need to teach him a thing or two!
