So today is the day - the two little ones (one pullet, one cockerel, SFHs) are 15 1/2 weeks old, it is not supposed to get super hot today and I am tired of carrying chickens around every day - they have had 9 weeks in their own little pens, one inside the coop and another in the run. I closed the pop door when there were only two of the hens in the nest boxes and let the little ones explore the coop. After maybe half an hour I opened the pop door. In came three hens and the RIR immediately started to wrestle with the cockerel. They pulled feathers, bit wattles, held each other down with their wings. Would not let up. At one point the cockerel had the hen down and held her there for a good 20 seconds, and when he let go she came at him again. Yikes! I told them to knock it off! and tossed the hen out the pop door. The little pullet is submissive and just got chased here and there or pecked, but with the cockerel and some of the hens it is beaks full of feathers and full out fights. Yikes! I guess I will watch them until they are all sound asleep today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!?
