Those who have experience with maintaining a chicken flock with multiple roosters, I need your advice. My heart has been breaking because our former head Rooster, Sven, has been demoted by second-in-command, Peyton (there is a third one named RA). That wasn't a problem during the good weather months because Sven would just hang out in the woods with a few of the hens around him. Whenever he got near to Peyton, Peyton would chase him. It was actually kind of funny. Now I'm not laughing anymore. We had snow last night and none of the chickens would come out of the coop even thought I opened all their doors. Peyton kicked Sven out of the coop early this morning and the poor guy just stood in the snow, with one leg up because it was so cold and wet. He was all by himself. Then he went into the woods by himself. He's still outside all alone even thought the snow is melting. I put food outside our door for him so he could at least eat. And there are still some waterers around the yard he can drink from. It's heartbreaking to see him out there all alone. I'm forseeing a very bad situation when it is the dead of winter with a snow-packed ground and snow or rain coming down and wind blowing. Since they won't let him back in the coop, I feel like he will perish over the winter months. I don't think it's a good idea to give him away because even if I find someone who wants him, he's one of those roosters that occasionally attacks people. I know, I know...but he's like the scorpion in the story of the scorpion and the frog. It's in his nature to attack/protect even though not all roosters have this programming. Does anyone have any experience with this and if so, do you have any suggestions/advice for this sad situation? Thank you so much!
