I have a flock of 14 six month old laying hens. I've noticed two hens which are always getting picked on. I've seen a couple hens who constantly are running them off, pecking at them....even keeping them from going/staying in a nesting box. I have one and sometimes two eggs on the floor and I suspect that may be the reason? Anyway, I'm considering getting a rooster if that would help with this kind of behavior. Would a rooster help even things out or just add more problems? Also, my grandkids are enjoying my hens a lot. Is there such a thing as "kid friendly" roosters?
