Our flock of Mottled Javas was attacked by what we believe to be a fox or coyote... The full story for maybe for another forum, but I'm concerned about my roosters long term behavior. He was missing along with two other girls when I first discovered what happened. He came back early the next morning crowing low and sad. He wasn't mangled or anything, but he was definitely roughed up, missing more than half his tail feathers, and others. It was pretty obvious he did his best to save the girls, I'm lucky to have him back. But even though hes come back he's, of course, acting differently. When he initially came back, we sat on the porch together and he was more affectionate than he's ever been. He's never let me pet him, he didn't then either, but it was obvious he wanted to be close, and he stayed close all day. My father's free range flock was attacked a couple times when I was a kid, but the roosters either got more aggressive or didn't survive. I'm not sure I want to see him get as aggressive as some of my dad's RIRs did, but I am worried he won't ever be close to the same. I realize that no one has a crystal ball, but I was just curious of other people's experience.
