What does it mean when a rooster shakes his head? I have a Orp. rooster who seems to be getting very aggresive towards the hens. My best hen in particular. He shakes his head and does a little dance, and she runs away. She is the top hen,in the pecking order among the 3 girls. He also tends to get aggresive towards me when I go out to the pen. I don't go in the pen without a stick. My hubby says he needs to be brought down a notch. The girls haven't let him mate for about 6 weeks as far as I can tell. The funny thing is, the one who was more willing is now the one that he picks on the most. They were all born in March. I don't want to get rid of him if I can help it, but the girls are more important to me than he is. Would he kill her? Is this just normal behavior? Any advice would be appreciated.
