Just let nature take its own course. Plus the whole deed takes just a few seconds, they may be mating and you just not see them. Or they may not be old enough.

Also, I've removed your other post as it is a duplicate.

Mine breed in front of everyone!! I looked out the front window because a car was stopped in front of the house. The whole family had their faces pressed up against the windows watching my Cocky Rocky, well, um, you know. I don't know if they were horrified or fascinated!!!

I also met my UPS guy in the driveway with my package and a hen followed me down and was inspecting his feet when Big Red came out of nowhere, and, well, you know. He looked at me and said "Is that what I think it is?" I said, "Yup, we have a full on Rated R yard and garden!!" He laughed and said "I always wondered "How" it happened!!"

Yup, when Mother Nature kicks in, there isn't anything that will stand in her way.

Do you feed it to them dry or mashed
I buy laying mash from a local Amish man who grinds it. You can buy it at Tractor Supply- They call in Layenna (not sure on spelling) and you can get it in Crumbles. If you have a grain mill or a feed mill near by, they can sell it to you as well, they call it "laying mash". Laying mash if ground resembles ground corn.
