    My rooster is particularly aggressive (amorous) towards my hens, should I put him in a seperate coop? I have several chicks getting ready to come out of the nursery but don't want to stress the hens. 3 weeks since they layed eggs after a stray dog killed my Bantum flock. how long before they lay again?

    Not sure I understand the question. Are you planning to put the chicks with the hens? How old are the chicks?
