    So...I had seen my silkie roo trying to mate with one of my pullets (she isn't laying yet but I was told when I bought her that she was close to POL). She would sometimes squat for him when he tried to do his thing. He was a bit uncoordinated. He started doing this 1 month ago and he is currently 21 weeks old. For at least the last week or so I have not seen him try anything with the girls. Is this normal??

    The girls may have pecked him for doing that. Is he lethargic?
