    I had to get of two rooster (thread: Well I have to get rid of my rooster)

    I do feel terrible [​IMG]

    Now my 6 hens are in a frenzy, and won't let me near them (do they really think I'm going to find other homes?) I go in one place they all hurry to another place. They won't eat watermelon out of my hand. [​IMG] So do you think this losing part of the flock and reestablishing a top hen and lower hen?

    [​IMG] this is how I feel right now!

    Yes, they are reestablishing the new pecking order. Give them a few days to work it all out and they should be fine.
