My chickens are 17 weeks. I ordered two brahma hens and one easter egger hen. These are my first chickens! Anyway, the EE turned out to be a roo named Sunny. He was sweet at first, then he attacked my cattledog named Jack. He actually chased him down! I kind of dismissed it, a little, although I did get the chickens for him too because I figured he needed a job. I have been keeping Jack away so he doesn't get too afraid of the chickens. He doesn't want to take any "stuff" from Sunny though, and I was afraid of an accident. So with that, the first nail went in the ummm, let's say coop. Then my brother-in-law came over and Sonny chased and attacked his leg. I wanted to think that since Larry was a stranger, that was why he did it. Now, Sunny likes to walk behind me and pinch my leg. Today, he walked along side of me staring at me. When I stopped and looked dead-on at him and asked him what the heck he though he was doing, the feathers on his neck puffed out and he grabbed my pant leg! Nail number 2. I just watched tonight as he attacked my sweetheart of a petite little brahma by grabbing her wing and making her cry really loud. That ticked me off right there. Then I watched about 1/2 hour later as he grabbed her again! Nail number 3; 4 nails is the magic number. My hens aren't even laying yet. I don't want her to feel uncomfortable in her own yard. Sunny likes the other "fatter" brahma and he won't attack her. Funny how she isn't as friendly as the other petite hen. Of course now that my favorite hen is being attacked, I have to ask, should the roo be gone? My husband says he likes Sunny, that we should give him a chance, but if needed, he would do the "deed." What do you think? Should I find him a new home? I want more hens, do you think he would become less aggressive with a couple more hens? Should he go in the chicken pot? He is a beautiful roo! He was sitting on my lap, snuggling with me only a month ago!
