Ok so I have 8 hens and ended up with 3 roosters. One did not develop much, he has an impacted crop that will not go away so we are keeping him comfortable. The other two grew big and it was obvious one was the guy in charge. He kept the other one at bay and we all kinda felt sorry for the underdog. Everything else in the coop was great though. All happy hens. We planned on getting rid of the big two but decided to sell the one in charge first. It took weeks but I found a buyer. He was a big pretty blue Ameraucana and the other one is a black with shiny teal feathers. Now that the blue is gone the black one has become a tyrant. He was always docile before. Now he will run right up to me like he is not scared. I worry he will become aggressive. He is MEAN to the hens. It is like chicken rape 24/7 out there. I am sure the blue was not a "gentle" lover lol but he did not constantly mate with them like this one does. He chases them nonstop and pulls a ton of feathers. They are all stressed because of this and the hens are picking at each other now too. I watch them pluck feathers from each others chests. They are all beat up looking from patchy feathers on their backs, heads, and chests. I have watched him pull on their combs while on top of them so they all have bloody spots on their combs.
I wish I had tried to sell the black rooster first! Hopefully I can rehome him faster than the first. I do not want to give him away for free, I dont want anyone eating him. :( I just hope I can find another buyer before my hens start dying!
