I have 3 hens and 1 rooster. At first my roo was showing a little aggression, pecking me, "raping" his twin sister, typical rooster stuff (I think). But then I guess my oldest hen decided that she wasn't gonna take it anymore, and started assaulting my roo at every chance she could get. She would get on top of him and pluck off his feathers, and peck at his head until he bled. She's much larger than him (she's an Easter Egger and he's a silkie), so he doesn't stand a chance. Now, whenever they get remotely near each other, my roo runs for his life, squawking and all, and my hen attacks him. It always ends bloody, and he's so afraid now. He used to be fearless, the alpha male, but now he's so timid and defeated. So what should I do? They keep on fighting, and its tearing my flock apart. In order to protect my roo, I've separated him from the coop, and now he stays in the garage. Will this have to be permanent? Will I have to keep either him or my eldest hen away from everyone else for the sake of his life? Is there anything I can do?
