We have an EE rooster that keeps the ladies in line. He puts them in at night, leads them around the yard. They've been with this same rooster their whole 16 months of life. He is really rough on them lately though, and we are planning on sending him to 'freezer camp' soon. Will the hens be ok without the rooster? They still know where to go and when to go in without him don't they? Do you think they will appreciate a break from his harassment?
