My tom is aggressive to my hens...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just sold my young Jake, he was from the same clutch as the hens I have. I put my older tom in with my hens. My palm laid down for him, but he proceeded to jump and spur at her, he spent the best part of 20 minutes chasing my hens. I moved him to then coop next to them and they came to check him out threw the divider and he was still jumping and trying to spur.....what do I do!? I can't leave him in the coop he's in. It's just a make shift "it will work for now " thing.... He can see my hens and they can see him, should I wait a few days till I try it again? Or is it just going to be a ongoing thing?

My tom was hand raised. Only one that survived the hatch of that season....idk if that means anything or not....he's not aggressive at all to us....his best buddy is a rooster. So idk why he's acting this way to th hens...

My tom has started doing the same thing. He actually killed a laying hen i have. He is not aggressive towards humans just the hens from time to time. Im ready to sell him and move on.

We kept him in the coop next to the hens for a few days. They are now all living happy
