    My rooster is attacking my one of my hens! He has put a big hole in the back of her neck! What do I need to do to him??

    i started similar thread yesterday. My rooster has taken dislike to one bantam - ripped off her comb. He's in a separate pen now while I decide what to do. Most people say he has to go but I'd quite like to give him a second chance as he has not been aggressive to me or any other chickens

    I had to say good bye to my rooster: he continued to be mean to one little bantam.

    Speaking from experience, its not even worth trying to rehab a bad natured rooster. Its best to just put him in a pot and move on to a new one. A vicious rooster will always be vicious.
