My latest flock is 4-months old. 5-pullets and 1-roo (mistake). The roo is an easter-egger. They are free range, 8X10 coop, just weening them from grower ration to layer. They have access to both. Water has ACV w/mother's included. Red light in coop. The roo has been doing a pretty good job tending to his ladies and they follow his lead. I have tried to keep him friendly by giving him lot's of attention. He allows me to pick him up and he will jump up on my knee from time to time when I am visiting with them when securing them for the night. However, he is becoming quite aggressive with 2 of the pullets. He hasn't started mating, but he grabs them behind their heads or back as if attacking them. He will chase them trying to grab them and pull out their feathers. I would very much like to keep him, but if this behavior is bullying and being overly aggressive and not part of the learning how to mate process he will have to move on. When he is not doing this, the pullets stay with him, follow him around and otherwise depend on him. But they sure scream out when he's being mean. I would appreciate some advice or comforting thoughts in this matter.
