I am new to chicken raising, as of this year (for the most part). My King Rooster (5 and a half month old Ameraucana) is rather harsh with my 1 yr old hen (also Ameraucana). She sounds like she's dieing when he grabs the back of her head and just jumps on top. She does not seem like she is liking him at all and attempts to run from him consistently. She seems to be the only one he is fond of. I haven't seen him mate with any others... I think he started mating about a week ago. For the time being, until I get some suggestions and direction, I have separated him and put him in the spare coop. Will he become gentler? Will she eventually warm to him? She's rather tiny and possibly a runt. I have a 6 month old Ameraucana hen that is larger than her. Any suggestions are graciously appreciated. I really do love the way he looks and am not fond of the idea of putting him in freezer camp. If that's what needs to be done though, I might just use him in the spring to produce chicks.
