    My local feed store had 8 roosters and one hen in a pen? She sure seemed beat up and missing a lot of feathers on her back. I took her home. My rooster seems to be segregating her from the others? She's HUGE compared to my little Banties. Poor thing she still seems scared, but better. Do you put 1 hen in with all those boys?
