And now a rooster too. I noticed a bloody headed hen on Monday and thought it was one of the 3 roosters in the pen. We went away for a couple days and now there are two hens in bad shape and even what I thought was the culprit rooster has some blood on his head. The pen has 3 roosters and 16 hens, all hatched and raised together. I had a lot more roosters, but did a cull a few weeks ago and things calmed down. I don't have an easy way to separate the roosters as my second pen has 1 roo and 9 hens already in it. Is this all likely to be mating behavior? How much could be pecking order stuff? I am rapidly becoming less than enthused about keeping roosters for breeding purposes, since I am mainly in this for eggs and the pleasure of keeping the birds. What is the best course of action? I can see: - Cull the 3 remaining roosters in the main pen and be done with it. - Try to figure out a way to separate the roosters for a while until the hens heal (but I don't see how I will not be back to the same problem when I reintroduce them) - Cull all but one rooster to calm down the infighting - Something else? I don't much want to lose hens, so any and all suggestions are welcome.
