    My Partridge Silkie Roo attack my Cornish Hen. He grabbed her wing with his beak. She screamed VERY loud. That was the only part I saw. When me and my brother checked her, her comb was bleeding just a little. IDK what the rooster was doing. Can anyone tell me what's up.

    Were they just put in together recently? He probably was trying to breed her. sometimes with finicky hens, the roosters will try to grab hold of them any way they can to try and hold them down. if he gets real aggressive towards her, i'd take her out.

    Im not to sure whats going on but you should remove him at once either to another pen or to freezer camp.A rooster that aggresive could turn on humans especially children.

    Yeah, they've been together for 2-weeks. I might just give him to someone else.

    I would, some roosters are just to aggressive towards the girls, and could really hurt them bably if they throw their weight around. Like really if you think about it...humans are put in jail for things that some roosters do to some hens.
