my question is this ...

Why the output is "Deer Reindeer-Age, false"  not    " Reindeer-Age Deer, false.

please Explain!

Welcome to the Ranch!

The first call in any constructor is to another constructor. Either that's explicit (using this(...) or super(...)), or if you don't add such a line, an implicit super(). In other words, your Reindeer constructor is actually this:

So the first thing that's called is the Deer constructor without arguments (which prints Deer), then Reindeer-Age is printed.
