I am a 1st time chicken owner and I will admit that we did not do our proper research. In March, we bought 6 bantam chickens from Tractor Supply along with a nice coop to fit 12-14 chickens. Well after 2 days we found out that bantams could be male or female. So being that we wanted egg layers, we went back and bought 4 road island red hens. Out of the 6 bantams, 4 turned out to be roosters. One is a Silkie that is the head rooster and is very mean to the hens. He won't even let them out of the run area of the pen. Most of the time the hens are sitting on the perch up high so he can't get to them. Is this normal to determine the pecking order and to show his dominance or is he just being mean. Then other roosters are not like this with the hens. Any advice would be helpful.
