    So my crazy, flighty, and all around phyco cockerel has always been afraid of my hens. I've been introducing him to my hens for about 3 mounths now. He would run away from them and not even go within five feet of them. Today, he came out of hiding and mated with ALL six hens! Should he be fine with them now?

    Yes, he will be okay with them. Did all the hens accept him or did some fight. He still may get some bullying at first, but they will eventually accept him.
