Hi, not sure if this is the right spot for this, but... We have 20 chickens, all between 14 and 15 weeks. 2 are roos, a GLW and an EE. Both roos have been crowing for a couple weeks now, and although the EE is a more vigorous noise maker, the GLW is definitely boss (and very mellow too). I'm concerned about the EE roo. He has begun trying to mount the hens, who are all EXTREMELY unhappy about this. He races up and grabs their neck feathers, they SCREAM and race around while he rips feathers out and gets dragged along. If the GLW is around, the hens run for him and the EE lets go. He only tries to mount our production reds, the SS, my beautiful slate Ameracauna hen, and two dark EE hens (he completely ignores our all white hens, the light brahmas and the BRs). I've only seen him 'successfully' mate one very threatened hen, but I regularly see him EAT the feathers he has ripped out of the ladies necks. Additionally, this evening I heard a huge commotion and discovered that he had beaten a RIR hen into submission, and she was laying flat on the ground afterwards as he continued pecking at her head. I seriously thought he had killed her, but when I went in and grabbed him up by his feet, she popped up and ran off... I know chickens can get pretty raucous with mating, but I've never seen hens this unhappy or a roo so nasty about it before. Is this because he is just figuring it out, and the girls are too young to be interested, or??? The GLW is super mellow, and will interfere if he is nearby, but he doesn't try to breed the pullets yet himself at all... Should I be worried? We really wanted at least one roo, and both are very handsome, but if this is abnormally aggressive, I'll send him to the stew pot before I see all the dark hens neck feathers ripped out!
