Hi All, my cockerel is about a year old, he is very sweet with the (3) girls, but, paradoxically, has hurt his favourite one badly on her neck. I'm keeping her separate to heal, but am afraid it will just happen again once they are together. How can I discourage him? What I gather so far, is: 1. Getting more chickens might spread the love better, ratio of 10 girls to 1 rooster 2. Get rid of him. I will if I have to, but am hoping for another solution And that's about it. Any suggestions?
