    Young healthy roosters don't seem to want to be limited to a season....

    Quote:Ummmm...a rooster doesn't care if it's negative 10 outside and he has to go outside to mate a hen...he WILL take care of business-and again and again! There is no specific season for roosters to mate--they mate year round, 24/7! [​IMG]

    Roosters don't care about a season!!! [​IMG] They mate constantly, 365 days a year if they can. [​IMG]

    All day, every day, with anything that will sit still.

    They have a one track mind, and it's always in the gutter.
