    he is just telling her to be loyal to him. do you already have another rooster?

    I got a hen and 7 2 month old chicks, and a few have started facing off with each other, and just about anything. It gives me a good indication of which ones are cockerels I think...Then again the hens do it too....I think it is just chicken behavior. If it is causing any serious injuries then I would try to figure out something...perhaps a smaller cage within the coop that you can put a couple of the chickens in until they are better behaved, or more acclimated to each other.
