    Anyone here have a clue as to why my white rock hen , 14 months old , is being aggressive toward other hens ( her siblings all same age ) & trying to mount the other hens . I don't know what else to do , i just seperated her from the others , thanks

    They'll do that in absence of a rooster. I'm assuming you don't have one? The head hen starts acting like the rooster. Mine is doing it too now. [​IMG]

    Hi , I had a rooster up until 2 weeks ago . He kept attacking me everytime I went into the pen so I gave him to a neighbor .
    I figured it was something like that ( no rooster ) , thanks for confirming it for me & answering so quickly [​IMG]
