    i went to the coop this morning and my WCB Polish rooster was all bloody around his beak and neck...also had feathers missing on his chest. there
    is no other rooster in pen with him but one of the hens just started laying 3 days ago and has layed two eggs. would the hen be
    beating up on him as i have no clue how he got this way.....

    Could some predator have tried to grab him through the chicken wire or could he have gotten his head stuck somewhere?
