In the Brooder
- Jul 1, 2008
I have 4 Bantam Hens and 2 Bantam Roosters. The roosters went their separate ways, one kept the 4 hens and the other adopted my large Rhode Island Red hens (we now call him Huge Hefner). One Bantam Hen has hatching eggs (9 so far out of 13). She's in a separate large cage just moved to a larger separated area. "Huge", who never comes in the barn any other time except at night to coop, was in the barn standing on "cage area". Why is he suddenly interested in this hen and will he hurt them if he gains access to them?
