So I have two flocks at home and one is starting to mature as the hens have started laying eggs and the Cockerels are attempting to mount the hens. Well, I have one that not only mounts the hens but the other cockerels. He does not seem to have the hang of it yet as some times he gets the head or mounts sideways or what have you. Anyway, that is not what I am worried about. This is my first time with roosters so I am not sure if the following is normal or not but it does not seem to be. When attempting to mount his hen he will grab her by the neck or the tail and remove feathers. He will continue to do this while trying to mate. He seems to be overly aggressive with the hens in this sense. I have three other cockerels so a few are going to the dinner table soon. As the others do not act like this I am guessing he is a likely candidate for crock pot. Anyway, is this sort of behavior normal for a juvenile rooster or is it too aggressive? Thank you.
