Weather here was decent yesterday - sunny & near 40 So, for the first time in weeks, I let the girls & teen roo out of the coop to freerange. Once they got over their fear of walking on snow you have never seen happier chickens. But: When I went to put them up around 4ish, my Head Hen - Noodle - had a bloodied comb. She seemed oblivious and no major damage seemed done. In the coop there was some blood spattered on the hanging feeder. I am wondering if Mr Studly tried to mate her (he's 5mo & hormones must be a-popping) or was it just some skirmish around the feeder?
