    Otherwise gentle rooster relentlessly harassing my favorite hen!

    scratch'n'peck : I think your initial interpretation is accurate. I'm not sure how you can encourage her to accept his dominance and mating advances. Just removing him temporarily to give her a break would make it more difficult though. That might give her a chance to reassert her dominance...

    Otherwise gentle rooster relentlessly harassing my favorite hen!

    Thanks for the replies. I don't have him for any particular purpose. I adopted a d'Uccle hen and he came with her as a chick. Ended up being a cockerel and I became attached. Here we are a year later! So you don't think it would help if I removed Knucklehead for a couple of weeks and then...

    Otherwise gentle rooster relentlessly harassing my favorite hen!

    My d'Uccle/Ameraucana rooster is just a year old. He's always been wonderful with my hens and I've never seen any aggression from him. He steers clear of people; has never flogged, postured or challenged me. He's beautiful, docile, and sweet with his girls. My five pigeons even live in the coop...

    Is this a West of England?

    Well, I never realized anybody replied to this thread! We still have this goose, I have no idea how to identify it and don't even know whether it's a goose or gander. A rehabber told us that it's perfectly fine to let it go at a local reservoir....I can't imagine that's a good idea for a...

    Is this a West of England?

    This goose was found on the side of the road and so far nobody has come forward for her. I've also picked up a duck and a rooster in the same spot, so either somebody keeps dumping animals there or animals keep getting loose from someone in the area. So is she a West of England? She'll need...

    Tricks country folk play on City Slickers

    This whole notion that "city slickers" are a bunch of naive morons who don't know jack about anything important and the fact that it's always brought up on this site as the butt of your jokes really irritates me. Sometimes it seems like it's all in good fun but most of the time it takes on a...

    Watched "The Cove" for the first time last night.

    Me too. I'm so thankful for those brave individuals who are responsible for bringing this matter to the public's attention and risking their lives to do so. To think that most of Japan didn't even have a clue this was going on right under their noses... I hope enough people stand up to end it...

    Watched "The Cove" for the first time last night.

    I'd been seeing the previews for weeks and hadn't planned on actually watching the documentary. I am very sensitive about things like that and knew I'd be hysterical. However, by the time it aired last night I decided that forcing myself to watch would be worth it if it meant being able to...

    Man killed by his wrestling bear....

    It should be illegal everywhere. Whether or not there's a human fatality, there's almost always tragedy in the way these animals are housed and cared for. How can you take a wild animal that naturally roams over hundreds of miles, lock it in a glorified dog kennel, strip it of every natural...

    Raw diet for cat with Chronic Kidney Disease?

    I have a 7 year old indoor cat who's being treated for trauma-induced CKD. He's maintaining very well and you'd never know he was "ill". His last bloodwork was done a little over a week ago and his kidney values were almost normal again. My vet gave us the OK to decrease his subQ fluids from 7...

    I have a question about commercial meat rabbits.

    I was discussing raw pet diets with a woman I know. She feeds her cat a premixed ground rabbit diet from a small local raw pet food company. On their website it says nothing about "organic" or "hormone free" or anything of that nature, nor does it claim that these rabbits are locally raised on a...
