I have a 1 year old roo and 23 7 week old pullets. When do you think it would be ok to let them be together? I have him separated in his own area of the yard right now. The other day I heard a strange sound coming from the chicken yard and I went over to investigate, It was Colonel Bok Bok (my roo) with a june bug in his mouth. He didn't eat it, he was calling to the girls and putting it on the ground then picking it back up and putting it down again and so on. The girls weren't paying him no mind though and of course he's in his pen and they couldn't get to him if they tried. I know he likes them and they like him because when I let the girls out of their house in the morning they run to the fence to greet him and he clucks back at them. I think he likes them for different reasons though. I think I should wait a little while longer because they're small and I don't want him to try and mate with them. What do y'all think?
