    I think you need to get rid of him, there is really no other way, if he is being a bully then there should be no place for him in your coop
     
  6. well we found some one to buy all our chicks we're selling (shes starting a hatchery, she bought 3 japanese bantams from us last year) but shes taking him as well, should I warn her to keep him seperated? He would most likely be used for breeding since shes starting a hatchery
