Mating Drake to young peking hens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a breeding pair drake and hen pekin.  I now have 6 pekin hens that are almost 7 weeks old.  I want to let them out and free range with the others but am concerned, will the drake hurt them trying to mate?  He stalks outside their pen now LOL..
