I have three younger (4 months old) hens/pullets. I got an older hen (1 year old) and put him in a cage inside the coop for about 4-5 days. I let him out on Saturday and he has been chasing the smaller hens up into the nesting box on the second floor. About 15-20 times a day he will then go up and chase them down and back up. This has been going on since the first day. After the first night he claimed the higher roost and now will not even let them on the lower bar. How long will this be going on before they will be together or what point should I try to find him a new home?? I was hoping she would take on the motherly role but not looking like it so far. One of my smaller one's was limping the other day but looks like he is better now.
I have two Production Red and one white Plymouth Rock and the older one is a white Plymouth Rock
