I am sure these will be easy peasy questions for you guys. First, chicks are exacyly 12 weks old. Accidenral Rooster appears to be breeding. Is that correct, or is he biding his time?
Second, they do some unidentifiable behavior . its not a yawn, or choking. They just kinda stretch their necks, gape open the mouths give the all clear, and are on their way

At that age he is not mature enough to sire yet, but soon. That isn't to say he won't mount. Some have started the behavior at an even younger age. Mounting is also an act of dominance that even hens will do to help enforce the pecking order. As for the neck thing. Without seeing it I would guess it is just that, stretching their necks.
