OK the weirdest thing happened just now. I just saw my 14 week old cock, mount and mate a 1 year old hen. He sneaked up behind her and pounced...I actually saw him mating her. She submitted, probably thinking it was our older roo, her own age, but as soon as the little guy "dismounted" she saw who it really was and pummeled him to the ground my question: isn't he too young to be acting this way? I though it was around 5 months or so, he is only just over 3! Maybe watching an older roo do it awakens his instincts early?
