Hi everyone, I have 3 Orpington hens and 1 Orp. rooster. They were born in March of this year. They were laying and breeding and everyone was happy, then we had a dog attack. My roo did his job and protected his girls, and in the process lost all his tail feathers. He seemed a little unsure of himself afterwards, and stopped mounting for about 2 weeks. Well now he has is confidence back, but the hens keep refusing him. They will run and hide in the coop if he tries anything. Is this because they're molting? I have hopes of breeding them and raising chicks next summer. I'm thinking of getting more hens, maybe they will get a little jealous. He was a good gentle rooster, but this is starting to make him ornery.
