Hi there. I just built a coop/run to rescue a couple of chickens. They like the new digs,but one of them turned out to be a rooster. In my defense,I am a newb and he was/is really torn up. So,to save her(him) from being every chickens pecking boy,we took him in. We also took in another low pecking order chicken as company for him. All good, and he doesn't really even crow. My daughter calls him Featherweight. The hen is Knuckles. Featherweight seems to be bullying Knuckles. I attributed him high jacking food or sleeping quarters as normal dominance. Our house rabbits do the same, and they're fixed. But lately Knuckles the hen has been hiding her head behind a vertical log sitting in the corner of the coop/pen. She can't be enticed out, but she has let my wife pick her up from there,and she has previously been supper skittish with all of us. I suspect he is pecking at her head and neck to initiate mating,or asert dominance. Should I get more hens? I wonder if it will still be a problem. We can only have 4 more chickens,so there is a hard limit. I would dump the rooster,but s/he is the reason we adopted chickensin first place.
