    My roosters chase and sometimes catch a hen. Most of the time if the roo catches the hen she will scream and get away. Yesterday I had a hen that didn't really make an effort to get away. She didn't scream much. She just squatted and sat there (relatively) quiet until he finally jumped off. They are 13 weeks old. Please tell me she ain't ready to do what I think she was doing.

    Well, anytime a boy jumped on my back & pulled my hair I asked that he at least introduce himself first.
