Put them back at night, that is. My wife suggested it, but I'm worried. Bought the tractor that came with 3 hens(1 RIR and 2 RIR mixed). I tried introducing a 3-4 month old full blooded RIR into the tractor, but the head hen had him on his side trying to peck the daylights out of him. I have since put a division between the rooster and the hens( these are some big girls). They can see each other and there is at least one of the hens trys to peck through the fence at times. She knows she can't, but letting him know she is in charge. The rooster will now putting weight on since he left his large family. Should I wait a few months to reintroduce him when he's bigger? I'm also worried that if I let them out, I may lose them (can't get them back in). I have had the tractor and hens 3 nights and the rooster with his seperate area 2 nights. I have also gotten four eggs so far. Isn't that kind of slow? I'm giving them plenty of pellets, corn & oyster shells(?). What is your experience? Sorry for three questions at once, Just trying to get up and running.
