Let me set the back story I have an EE roo who we call Festus,he was given to us about 5 months ago. I wanted to add him to my flock of EE pullets so I did the slow introduction through a divided run and after 2 long weeks I decided to try to add him to the gals. Apparently the EE gals had different thoughts and attempted to beat the crap out of that poor roo, so I pulled him out and put him in the divided part of my main run which consists of my layers,I knew from get go that they were not going to accept him,as they were trying to beat him up through the chicken wire divider. By now I am running out of options on where to place this guy. So instead of continuing to move him from flock to flock;we decided to build him his own place,which is still in progress, so for now he goes out to the tractor during the day and inside to sleep at night. We let him out to his tractor around 6am. Well this morning I kept him in for an hour longer than usual as the temps were really low this morning,while I was getting ready to take the kids to school Festus comes into my room. I have 2 cochin chicks(3 wks old) and 6 leghorn chicks(2 wks old) in a brooder,Festus proceeds to jump into the brooder; and grabs one of the leghorn pulllets and takes off running with her in his beak.So this all leads up to my question(s) A:What the heck was Festus going to do to my little pullet? Is this normal rooster behavior because my other roos have never done anything like that. Why would he grab a chick and run? I am stumped with this guy none of my flocks accept him and when we try to introduce a female to him he walks off. He also has this fascination with my son's stuffed animals he likes to ummmm mate them to put it nicely. I am serious he will walk to the toy box and pick his victim then carry it off,he tidbits to it and then mates it. I have washed many a toy and finally just broke down and gave him his own private teddy bear. I want nothing more than for this guy to be with the flock but no one accepts him. Thanks and sorry for it being lengthy.
