In the Brooder
- Mar 20, 2008
We have five hens and a rooster. The rooster seems to have a particular affection (I guess...) for one of the hens, and he climbs on her frequently. The problem is that she is getting raw and even a little bloody under her wings. We did have to isolate her once when it got really bad, but she healed and we returned her to the flock. She does not seem unhappy or unhealthy, and no one seems to be pecking at her, but I am concerned. My dh wants to get rid of the roo but the kids would be heartbroken. Any advice would be really appreciated.
