I really need to re-home him, though we all love him. He's wayyy overmating his favorite, though he has 10 hens to keep him busy. I have her in a saddle, which has helped considerably, but he's now ripping all the feathers out of the back of her neck, and unless they make hoods for chickens, I don't know how I can stop him from doing that. So anyway, I've found a great home for him on a farm just north of us, but I'm wondering just how upset my hens will be when he's gone. For those of you who have gotten rid of your roo from your flock of ladies, how did they react? Is there a major re-adjustment period? Is there anything I can do to help with that? Thanks for any advice!
