I have a 4 yr old Ameracauna hen who stopped laying last fall. Shes my oldest and only one not laying but super sweet so i was just going to let her live out her retirement. I also have a 2 yr old roo that has lived in the same coop since he was 8 weeks (red laced blue wyandot - nasty but does his job). Yesterday he started knocking her to the ground and kept her pinned there. Everytime she tried to get up he would pin her back down til she gave up and just laid on her side. I finally moved her out to an old coop i only use for new chicks. She is currently by herself until i put 5 week old babies there this weekend. Anyone know why the roo is doing this?
