Hello! I have a pair of D'uccle Mille Fleur bannys and they have grown up together very happily, since May. The other day I noticed that she had missing feathers on her head (I assume it was because she started laying eggs about 2 weeks ago and he has reached sexual maturity, and perhaps he had tried mating her)... I know I have a bad male to female ratio, but I noticed that after free ranging, her head where there were no feathers, was a little bloody. I cleaned her up and separated them so he couldnt keep pecking her (the separation isnt in ideal places, so I need a solution...). After coming home and seeing how upset mr. roo was, I decided to let him and her say hi, and he grabbed her head again and pinned her down, opening her scab back up... I plan to keep them separate until she is healed. The point being, what is the proper hen to roo ratio for bannys? I have a friend who is willing to give me her old english bantam hen to help ease the "sexual" frustration that he has. I have heard anywhere from 3:1 - 12:1...I have limited space, and want to keep him to get some fertile eggs (at least until I can have a big enough flock to get rid of him) Please let me know your thoughts...I need helppppp!!
