    Duke is my 16 week old white rock male. He has hit the big boy age and is now trying to mount the pullets. The problem is Daisy is the same age but the rest of the girls are a good 3-6 weeks younger and way smaller than he is. Everyone is scared of him except for Daisy and a little white silkie with a big attitude. Problem is that he grabs the girls by the neck and has drawn blood a couple of times. I don't know what to do. :|

    Can you separate him? Put him in another cage?
    I have separated a roo that is way to rough with the girls. They were so afraid of him. He's in the run while they free range. Hate to do it, but it's better than him ending up in a soup pot!
