We acquired a new rooster. He is 16 weeks old. We have had him separated from the 12 hens in a section of the run for 3 days. We have two coops, one on each side of the run, and he has had one of the coops all to himself. The girls come by to visit him and everything seems fine except for one hen who gets all puffed up and combative. (While I was changing his water she snuck in to his side and started fighting him.) Question is, what is my next step? How long should we keep him separated? Do I let him in the run with the hens? Let him free range? Put him the coop at night? The way the coop is situated, I don't think we can have him in the coop with the hens separated from him. It's all or nothing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
