I was hanging out with my chickens the other day when I saw one of my hens pecking the feet of my rooster. He was dripping blood pretty badly. I got a cage and kept him in my house until he healed. I put him back out this morning with no signs of a wound on either feet. About two hours later he was ripped open and bleeding again. I was wondering how I can prevent this. Any help would be greatly appreciated because my rooster is such a sweet gentle soul. He does not deserve this sort of treatment. Thanks! BTW all my chickens have been in the pen together without incident for over eight months.
