Need help! We have a flock of 12, 11 hens and 1 roo. All but 2 hens are easter eggers like the roo. The other two hens are speckled barred rocks. Here is the problem. Our roo has already murdered one of our other barred rock hens by clubing her to death and has now started the same behavior toward the other two remaing ones. I have cooped them up in our pen so he can't get at them, but it seems so unfair. I guess my question is if he just doesn't like it that they are a different breed? The other easter egg hens are of different colors than he, so I don't know if that is the problem. He is a beautiful roo and is kind to all the other girls. He just seems to not like the barred rock hens and is doing his best to kill them off. This behavior started just a few months ago and he has been with the same girls since birth spring of 2009. I can't decide if it is best to get rid of him or the hens? Hate to lose either!
