bullied hen - Page 2

post #11 of 14

Hey Aart, thanks for replying. The Plymouth Barred Rock rooster is about 10-11 months old. Thinking of culling the hen, not the rooster since he isn't bullying the other hens. I have four adjoining pens that the flock has access to, totaling about 2,800 sq. ft. My coop is raised and they go in that area for dust baths or cool off in the summer. Don't have any structure per sae for them to hide out in. Feeding 16% layer with boss and a sheaf of alfalfa every two or three days. Thanks

If you cull the hen, your rooster may choose another "favorite".

Exactly!

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
