I know this is sort of gross, but I saw a ton of fluid after one mating yesterday. I thought at first that it was from my hen, some sort of internal rupture or something, but then I suspected it was excess from the rooster. Is it odd for a large stream of grayish fluid to just trickle away like that, onto the ground? I'm very new to roosters, so I apologize for my stupidity. I never saw this on the farm, growing up? I wondered whether maybe my hen was so full of his fluid that she couldn't hold anymore? Also, after the two roosters both mated with Esther this morning, she nipped one of the young hen's wings, pulling on it. Do you think that might have been a stress reaction? We are putting a divider in the coop this afternoon. I am so worried the roosters may overtax the adult hen. She'll be 2 in March. The other two girls are just over 4 months old, the same age as the 2 roosters. The roosters don't seem very interested in mating with the younger girls, just the older hen. I am so worried the hen might get hurt. Has anyone had experiences with hens getting hurt by a rooster? I have read that a rooster can kill a hen while mating, by breaking her neck. Is this common? I've also heard of wing damage caused by mating. We are trying to get these 2 roosters to a farm where they will have lots of hens to mate with, but it is snowed in and we can't get there for a few days. Thanks for your help.
