Rooster being rough with the hens

My BR rooster is about 7 months old and being very rough with the girls. He is the only roo with 29 hens. I noticed a few of my 1 yr olds have bald spots on the tops of their heads and at first thought it was because they are molting, but then saw the roo jump on one and yank what little feathers she had left. Also a few of the 9 mo old RIR's are missing feathers on their backs by the tail. I saw a handful of feathers on the coop floor this morning. Will he settle down, or do I need to find him a new home? I love the sound of his crow (why I got him) and he is very kind to people, but I think it is taking too much of a toll on my girls.
