    Hi Eric, [​IMG]

    Barred Plymouth Rocks are nice birds, I have 3 of them in my mixed flock also. I'm wondering about the 2 roo/1 hen combination you have. It's generally recommended 1 rooster to about 10 hens so over-breeding stress and injuries don't occur. How old are your birds?

    NorthFLChick,

    It's not by choice. I have been trying to get rid of one but everybody is looking for a hen to go with as well and I am not willing to get rid of my hen.

    If the two roos gang up on your hen, you may not have her much longer. Actually even just one rooster, would be punishment for her. You need several more hens to share the grief or don't keep any roos and make the girls supremely happy.
