Roster Trouble

By Beartown1 · Jan 11, 2012 ·

    I have a barred rock bad boy. He is my only roster and is in charge of my 7 hens. The girls have just started laying eggs 2 weeks ago and he has become incredibly aggressive. He has attacked my husband and I, drawing blood several times. However, now he had attacked one of the hens so bad that here little bottom is bloody and featherless. :( I removed my poor girl from the coop and she is now inside until healed up. Not sure what to do with him. I can deal with his bad attitude, but I won't deal with my girls getting tortured. Suggestions? Or is it time for him to go?
