I REALLY NEED some wise advice.My heart breaks as I write this and I feel sick to my stomach.I have a small mixed flock of one BEAUTIFUL Rooster and 11 hens.After many months of peaceful co-existence,my rooster started picking on my largest and sweetest hen GOLDIE a Buff Cochin.This abuse escalated till she was a bloody mess- he nearly scalped her!This was six or seven weeks ago and I've had her her in "protective custody"in a isolation cage during that time.She had completely healed.I will forever regret the decision to release her earlier today.We watched out for her and he seemed un-interested.Sometime this afternoon he attacked her again! We did not witness the attack.Guys, it's BAD - REALLY BAD!Not only did he tear her head up again,but her right eye is just GONE! Left eye has some damage but is open.I fear she is now blind! (I'm trying not to short out my keyboard with my tears)I'm a grown man ,but these emotions have ambushed me! The point is I know what needs to be done,but it's REALLY hard to actually do it! PLEASE give me advice on the best way to put her down(best for her AND for me)I have few options-Iown a 410 shotgun,an axe,a bucket of water.I'm not sure I can do this.PLEASE THOSE WHO HAVE FACED THIS-WHAT DID YOU DO??? I am such a huge WUSS!!!HELP! ADVICE! I will check back often. Do it now? tonight? in the morning? talk me into it >i loved her SO MUCH!
