I'm a newbie Chicken owner with only about a year of Chicken experience. After a rouge puppy attack I was left with one each male and female RIR chicks. I named them Ricky and Lucy and kept it moving. They're now about 24 weeks old. Problem: Ricky is mature and crowing.Lucy isn't pulling her weight around the joint, as I have yet to get an egg. Shes on thin ice with me. Lol. In the last couple days, I've seen Ricky "mounting" her, for lack of a better word. What in the world is going on? I assume that that's how Chicken's mate, so ok. But shouldn't she be able to lay eggs first? Did Ricky not get the notice that she's not "there yet"? I know it seems kinda silly to ask, but I'm just not familiar with this kind of Chicken behavior. Essentially, I'm asking if this behavior means Lucy is close to laying, or if it's more a reflection of Ricky being mature first.
