hello everyone. I'm new to this so I need some advice. We took on our daughter's class of whatever hatched when they incubated 5 eggs. So, we got a rooster and hen and have raised them togther since they were 5 days old so they are BFFs. We purchased 4 new hens about 5 weeks ago. The 4 new ones are now finally hanging together but my first hen, henrietta, will not associate with them except to shoo them away form feeders when she wants them. She is always glued to Big Red's side (roo). Big Red is gorgeous, big, and a pain. He leaves our yard whenever he can and the hens do not. Who knows what he will do to the hens once he matures. I was told he will rip them crazy this winter when he matures. They are in a coop with a run under neath it that it 12x5. We feel it might be better to get rid of him so Henrietta becomes more sociable with the other hens. We do not need a rooster for eggs but I'm afraid of what Henrietta might go through when Big Red disappears Any comments are appreciated.
