I'm not 100% sure, but the evidence seems to point to Rooster having drawn blood today. I was treated to the scene of an axe murder when I went to the coop this evening. Drops of blood spattered everywhere. At first I was sure something had gotten to them, but all six hens were in the run, and I could hear Rooster honking in the coop, so I knew they were all alive. Thought maybe something had attacked and Rooster fought it, but when I looked in on him he was clean and uninjured. I think that I finally tracked it down to pinch wounds on the back of one hen's head -- though I don't know how that could have caused so much blood! I mean I'm talking blood spattered 3 feet high. Looked like a bad experiment in voodoo. I think he tried to mate her and she wouldn't stand still so he tore her skin. But all the feathers are still in tact, so I have no good way of telling for sure. No one seems to be treating her badly, so I'm not worried for her healing just yet... but does this sound like the likely scenario? And if it is, what do I do with this rooster? Will he grow out of it? Will the hens maturing enough to squat for him make it so it's not likely to happen again? Or is it a toss-up?
