    That depends really, on breed, temperment etc.... my current flock of Silver Grey Dorkings just started going after the gals yesterday, and they just turned 12 weeks. It was more like 16 weeks for my Buff Orpingtons, but I've heard some people report such behavior much, much earlier in their boys.

    My Partridge Rock Roos, all 3 of them are attempting to be "rooish". I say attempting, because....well lets just say they are trying [​IMG]. They are 16 weeks old.
