Hey all! I have a bit of a dilemma. I have 2 ten-month-old cockerels that have been getting along pretty ok (they tolerated each other). There was clearly a more dominant rooster (Lucius) that would chase the other rooster (Mr. Darcy) if he got to close to his girls. Apparently, yesterday, Mr. Darcy snapped and attacked Lucius into submission and I found him on top of Lucius plucking out his feathers. After separating the two and closing off Mr. Darcy in a shed, I looked over Lucius and checked for any injuries. Other than some missing feathers and a discolored, slightly bleeding comb he looked fine. But he was obviously in shock and just kind of stood around not really doing anything. Today, Lucius' comb has some better color, he seems a bit more coordinated and is eating, but he's still not right. He wasn't crowing this morning and when I let him out with the girls He didn't make his usual rooster clucking noises and just went off on his own. And, when I gave him treats he didn't call over the girls like he usually does. He seems a little lost and is acting like my chickens, making soft clucking noises and just going off on his own rather than leading the flock. It's like he forgot how to be a rooster. And, FYI, Mr. Darcy has been kept away from Lucius since the incident yesterday. Has anyone else experienced this? Is Lucius going to be ok and go back to being a rooster? He was a really good rooster to the girls and has never attacked anybody. My roosters have never been aggressive to people or even each other other than the chasing around from Lucius, so I was really taken aback by this. We do plan on getting rid of Mr. Darcy now that he can't seem to behave himself with Lucius. So, if you are in the Tampa, FL area and looking for a rooster I have one to give for free!
