Hi there, my Roo is a pretty good guy. However recently he has been trying to mate w. my GLW and she doesn't want any part of it. He pulls her neck feathers and she runs away - so there is obvious feather loss. So my question is..... Is there anything I can do to cover her neck feathers or do I just leave it? (assuming I can't change the Roo's behavior..)
Other facts: She is the lowest in pecking order and was last to start laying (at around 28 weeks). I don't think she ever let the Roo mount her! They are all 10 months old. Roo has a favorite (not her), and mates with others fine. He protects and feeds them all while they free range for about 5 hrs or more a day.
