My rooster is new to my flock. The girls don't seem to take to him and vice versa. Everytime I check on him I see him secluded by himself. The first night he roosted with the girls, but the second night I found him alone in a nesting box. I wonder if they are even letting him eat or drink I've seen them peck at him a bit. I also have yet to hear him crow. How can I discourage bullying? Will he eventually show interest in the hens at some point? I relalize its all still new to him but this is a first for me as far as a new member of the flock. I plan to spend some time outside with them tonight after work to observe things more.
