    It seems every morning when I let my flock out of their coop my rooster chases the hens around and not in a nice or amorous way. Why is he so grumpy? Is it cause hes cooped up all night with a bunch of women..haha. Just wondering if anyone out there knows why..

    Thanks

    He wants to mate or boss her around and then mate. They do that first thing in the morning.
