I have one 5mo. old rooster and 10 5 month old pullets. He is terrorizing them all to the point where they won't leave their coop to free range. They are roosting high in the coop all day and night. Last night I caught the rooster and separated him from the girls but, they are still too scared to come down and outside. What should or can I do to help these poor girls. I'm tempted to get rid of him although he's nice with me. Will this stop? Will they die of hunger? I never intended to have them petrified to this point. Any suggestions?
