    After a nail biting few days with my roo, i think he is going to make it! We made a makeshift "Roo Hotel" in the garage, to let his back heal. The girls had pecked him so bad that he was bleeding and hiding in the corner of the coop. So todayhe was out in the driveway with my husband they were having male bonding time lol. He saw the girls down by there run and ran down to the run and started his "dance"! I was thrilled! He hasnt made a move to go near the girls in 4 days!!!

    Editing to add, the only thing i noticed was that his poo is still all watery.

    Thanks for all your help!!!!

    I'm glad to hear he's feeling better! Poor guy, sounds like he's had a rough time. Hoping for a quick, full recovery for him! [​IMG]

    I hope that when he was running to the run those hens were repentant and singing:
    Won't you come home Bill Bailey, won't you come home?
    She moans the whole day long.
    I'll do the cooking darling, I'll pay the rent;
    I knows I've done you wrong;
    Member that rainy eve that I drove you out,
    With nothing but a fine tooth comb?
    I know I'se to blame; well ain't that a shame?
    Bill Bailey won't you please come home?
