    So, who were you expecting? Lady Chatterley's Lover?

    This guy's eight months old now and has just begun to mate because one the three hens finally started to lay. So far we've gotten six eggs from her. I've checked them all, and none of them are fertile. He just hasn't gotten "it" down yet and just needs time to learn how.

    As my 11 year old son told me last week talking about a young roo. "Give him some time, he'll learn to deliver the goods."

    My wife was NOT happy.

    Quote:That's right, but with your being special, you can buy them at "buy one, get one free". Just don't tell anyone that I did it for you.

    A fine looking fellow?
    He certainly acts like he thinks he is.
