Have a (newer) rooster--I have had roosters for years, but this is the first one that is mean to some of the girls. UGH. He likes a certain amount of hens, but to the rest is very aggressive towards. Some of the hens can't even come out of the hen house without being chased and attacked. Any advice? I know there is no way to fully get him to be nice, but just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar and if any tactics have worked...? They are being free ranged currently, but I just worry about winter when they are going to be in the coop, a lot confined smaller area...If things do not improve, I'm sorry, but my hens come first, and I will have to re-home him, even though I don't want to, but I will NOT let my hens be miserable and live in fear..
