In the Brooder
- Jan 16, 2011
Hi, I've been reading this forum for months but this is my first post. I have a roo and 3 hens. I got the roo from my sister in law, so not exactly sure of his age but I'd guess maybe 2 years old. He recently started going for me and my 4 year old son. So today after another attack, I isolated him in a 6' x 8' run, within the bigger run. At dusk he got very stressed trying to get out to be with his girls in the main coop. I feel sorry for him, but I have to get rid of him, my poor son is too scared to feed the hens or collect eggs anymore. I'm going to try to rehome him. Is it cruel to keep him separated from his girls while I look for a home? I'm really not comfortable going into the run when he's loose, but I don't want him stressed out either. What should I do?
