    Are your hens extra ummmm for lack of a better word......Horny now that Spring is almost here?

    I mean I know laying hens squat but I've got a super squat-fest going on here & I'm not sure if its normal.
    My girls will be two years old in a few weeks & after a very slow winter of molting(near death for one of them) & very few eggs they are back to laying full force which I'm thrilled about. However I'm starting to feel like maybe they NEED a rooster. I walk out the back door and as I attempt to walk by they drop to the mating postion & wait for the sorry subsitute for chicken sex I can provide for them with a rub down [​IMG] They really get into it & sometimes all seven of them will be down at one time waiting for "their turn", then they'll often come back over to me for "more"[​IMG]
    I'm thinking I might be the Ron Jeremy of chicken lovin'. [​IMG]
    Even my voice is enough to make them squat. [​IMG]

    Is this a normal occurance or am I experiencing something totally bizarre?

    Maybe putting a pin-up of yourself in a roo suit on the coop wall would help? [​IMG]

    I've noticed the same thing - all I do is say their name and they squat - no kidding. I didn't know if it was because of the lack of a roo or not. If so in a month they will be getting over it as they will have a roo. [​IMG]
