Hello Chicken Oracle! What is a good rule of thumb for the proper rooster age for introduction? We purchased some hens and two chicks around August 5th this summer. At that time our rooster chick was already 1 month old. He's already past the 3 month marker and is still smaller than our hens (especially our massive orpingtons!). We've introduced them several times and they roam the yard together. But... Roofio the Rooster is fanning out his neck feathers and fronting the hens, trying to mount our younger pullet...however our hen's retaliate, and Roofio runs for cover and had a bloody comb today. Should we wait a month longer or so? Thanks!
