I really wanted to breed my gorgeous black sumatra rooster but he is showing no interest in mating whatsoever. All the eggs from last spring were infertile. He doesnt do the rooster dance or anything like that. I've never seen him mount a hen, and he's two years old now! Any remedies or is he a lost cause?

Maybe so! Or maybe romance just isnt his thing...
I usually have the opposite problem with roosters.

Maybe he just hasn't met the right hen. I'm not being facetious. Some roos hook up with a favorite and ignore the others. Do the hens bully him. or accept him as the Rooster?
