Ok so my EE cross roo 'Ford' is just starting to breed and I have seen him be quite violent with the hens. Also my SLW hens are getting bare backs in just 3 or so weeks of breeding. Any how 3 days ago he was breeding my Lakenvelder hen Angel and after he did he continued to shake her by the neck until he tore open a large wound. She was not doing so good so we took her in the garage right after and nursed her for 3 days and she died this morning. I was puting antibiotic ointment on her wounds she also had 2 very large puctures on her back. And my sister who was a vet tec super glued her head wound. So I would apply hydgrogen peroxide every day and antibiotic ointment aswell. She had fresh clean water with vitamins and electrolites and crumbles always right with her so she could eat and drink and I gave her a heat lamp to keep her warm. Ford is a beautiful Rooster and I do like him. But I'm thinking freezer camp might be in order because this seems to be pretty aggressive for a 1st time breeder. what do you guys think??? Thanks for the help everyone Angel was my favorite of the lakenvelders as she jumped on my sholder and would eat out of my hand I really miss her but I don't want to 'do in' Ford unless totally necessary.
