    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]

    With behavior like that, soon you will see him sitting in his favorite Lazy-Boy with his feet up, taking a drink of his favorite beverage and watching tv all day. He's not the first roo that's happend to! [​IMG]
