well ive been gone from here for 4 yrs, was just given 6 sex link hens i think a few yrs old, people were moveing, 2 weeks later rescued a young roo, this yrs bird, hes bigger than the hens but they wont let him out of coop and beat on him if i put him out, i sit by him so he can get some sun and forage a bit and get treats? never had this problem before , will they eventually accept him?

try putting him in a rabbit cage or pen of some kind, where they can not hurt him but they can see or hear each other\, and maybe socialize a bit through the wire. they can mix later.
