i seperated her from the flock wat happened and what else can i do?
Rake? I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean her comb? What kind/how much blood? Is there an injury? I think we need lots more information to help you.
comb theres not much blood but theres no skin there no feathers i think its from overmating but we only have one roo to 30 hens so that puts that out of the question should i keep her seperated for a few days with gatorade?
If she just has a small injury from mating, I think you could just keep her separate till there is no visible blood so the others don't pick at the wound. She probably doesn't need gatorade, really.
Even with that many hens to one rooster, they still have their favorites. I had the same ratio myself till recently. Subordinate hens will squat and be mated more often than the rest of the girls.
is there any thing else i can do for her tho?
When I had an overmated hen, some folks on here suggested spritzing her with stinky cologne to make her unattractive to the roo...I didn't try it...
Well, she may be stressed being away from her coop-mates, so you could give her extra protein (scrambled eggs) or something, but really, the wound needs to be semi-healed and non-bloody, is all.
