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

    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.
