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.
