My 13 week old(they all are 13 weeks)Polish crested hen has always been the bottom of the pecking order but I thought it was getting better but they, or maybe just one rooster ripped about half her top crest out again. I am wondering if it was an attempt at mating my an inexperienced EE Rooster? He's second fiddle rooster to a banti cochin roo but is huge himself. Poor Queen Odecoup! She was all bloody headed again. It has not happened in weeks now and I watch her eat last, perch alone, and hid alot. I usually don't witness the agression but its obvious its coming from somewhere. I found the EE roo with her blocked behind a box in kind of a mating stance but not at that point trying anything. She really did not have anywhere to go. I shoo'd him away and she is in the garage alone in the booding box for a few days to heal. Will she ever fit in? Is it just him being rough on her or could they all be when I'm not looking? I have seen the cochin roo protect her and 4 others but thats the only help she gets. She seems so lonely. she is very people friendly and loves to be petted and held by people. I am way new at this and could use all the help I can get. I'm so new to this I really don't know what to expect or how rough the males are by nature. Would they be trying to mate at 13 weeks? I sit with them and hand feed and hold and pet everyday for a while but really really do not know what to do. Ihate the idea of her being hurt. She is the sweetest little loving thing. Is that why she's being beat up?
