    My almost 15 week old rooster has recently on a couple of occassions been observed doing some sort of weird "dance" for our almost 15 week pullet. He will go into the coop and stand by the doorway in the corner. Crouch down really low to the floor, peck at the floor and cluck softly while scraping his beak side to side on the floor. Then he will do what looks like he's trying to do the worm dance. She will come in and stand next to him and cluck softly for a few seconds then she will leave and he'll get up and follow her out to the yard. Is this some chicken mating ritual? I wish I could post a video because he's hysterical to watch.

    Boys are soooo predictable!!!! No matter the species.....Play Mr Cool hide in the corner...When that little pullet walks out and he follows her......I'm sure she told him what the rules were for the pleasure of her company....But he follows her because the brain in his little pecker (I mean beak) is the only thing that is working at this point!!!
