I just got a rooster (10weeks old) who is 2 weeks younger (and smaller) than my 6 hens. I do not have any other roosters. He seems to be very submissive, the hens peck him, chase him away from the food, chase him from any shelter in the yard. I finally took pity on him, and put him in an old rabbit cage at night (they are free to roam the yard during the day). I am not sure how to aclimate him and the hens to him being there. Most articles talk about roosters fighting - mine runs! Help!
