    When I got my rooster, I already had an established flock of hens. He got the crud beat out of him constantly. He finally managed to climb the pecking order 1 hen at a time, starting with the lowest ranking hen.

    When I asked about him getting beat up, I was told by another member that it was the hens teaching him humility. [​IMG]
