One of my hens is starting to attack my new rooster,I have a rooster already in there with her and he doesn't mind the other rooster but she does, is this normal or should I be worried? I've removed the rooster but I still want to add him to my flock. What should I do to stop her from attacking my rooster??

A mature hen can attack a young rooster to keep him in his place. That is just one of the pecking order things you have to ride out. Until he starts to stand up to her or gains her respect.
