    What would make a rooster literally grab a hen by the neck and force her to flip her over??????

    Roosters can be quite aggressive with their girls sometimes. Most of the time it is a sign of discipline. I notice that if one of my girls does something that Mr. Roo does not like she gets reprimanded. And in many different ways.

    Just keep an eye out on her to make sure she's not being singled out and showing signs of true injury.

    Good luck!
