    I have like 12 little red pyle bantams. In April or so, the mother bird had 4 roosters and 1 hen. Then, in mid-August, she had 2 more hens and 1 rooster. even though the 2 young hens are almost as big as the mom, she's still really defensive towards the older hen. Help?

    [​IMG] I'm not sure what you are asking here. Is the mother defensive of the older pullet chick and attacking the two younger pullets? How many cockerels/roosters do you have and how many pullets/hens?
