So I had ordered some BBW's for a 4H project earlier this year. Auctioned two off and had one butchered for Thanksgiving. The ones we kept were the healthiest looking birds. Anyway we have 5 birds left, one tom and 4 hens, but lately we've noticed that 3 of our hens have large gashes on their sides. The tom is a big flirt and struts and gobbles all the time and we've seen him attempt to breed some of the hens from time to time. Is it possible that he's causing the gashes on the hens? One of the hens is mostly healed but the other two's are fresher and even larger. The hens lay down for him and we try to get them to stand up or get him off when he tries to breed them. We've felt his toenails and they weren't very sharp but I'm assuming its the weight. Has anyone had this happen before? I'd hate to have him butchered as I've really grown to like him. He's sweet and quite comical from time to time. I'm just not sure what to do about it.
