    Is there anything I can do to discourage them? I am not ready to eat them just yet

    Carry a broom with you and use it to keep them at a distance. Do not use it to hit them but rather to push them away.

    This morning a weird thing happened. The hen I have actually herded the 2 males away. She stood up super strait and pushed them into the woods. Silly birds

    I wanted when I ordered them 3 hens and 1 tom but I ended up with the exact opposite

    Update: this morning when I let them out they seemed to have chilled since yesterday. Maybe they are scared of the hen
