    I posted this weekend about my poor rooster who was being set upon by a couple aggressive hens. Well, thanks to your suggestions, I was able to clean him up, put pine tar on his tender spots, and put him back with the flock. Two days now and he's not wearing any blood. In fact, he is more securely in charge than he was previously. He rounded up the ENTIRE flock tonight! Usually he just gathers his 8 girls.

    Thank-you so much for the suggestions!
