My hens have been with my rooster for about 6 months now, and they've all got saddles on their backs because he's given them bald spots. He's a BIG rooster, but he doesn't seem to have sharp or very long spurs and is not aggressive at all. He's 1.5 years now. The girls are going through their molt and I don't want him to stress them too much during this time that's so hard on their bodies. Should I separate him for a month or so to give them a break? I have 7 hens but 6 more growing up so once they're older he'll have more hens to share his attention with. Any suggestions on how to separate him if I decide to? Is it better to separate him in the coop or away from it (I'd give him a set up inside our shop 10 feet away from the coop).
