    my rooster has been chasing away hens from the feed and water. no matter where i put it. if i have multiple out he still chases them off is this normal behavior for a rooster? He is a Rhode Island Red

    my roo will not touch the food until his hens are fed and full. this is bad roo behavior. i would get rid of him. separating him might work but i would send him to the table or get rid of him.

    yeah he seems really aggressive toward the hens. i need to find a more docile roo. one that wont try to attack me when i go to do anything out there. thanks for the advice :)
