    I have 7 hens and 1 rooster that have been together for some time now. I got rid of 4 hens about a month ago which I know changed the pecking order. I have two very sweet sultans that the rooster hates. He will stand on their backs and peck them on the head and then drag them by the top of their head. He does not allow them in the same area he is in but he will let them sleep on the roost next to him. They will even squat for him but he has never mated with either one of them. This has been going on for a month now and it is not getting any better. Will he ever get along with these two sweet white girls????

    [​IMG] Animal behaviour is so mysterious sometimes, it never fails to amaze me. Sorry I don't have any advice for you. Poor gals.

    My chickens are racist and ageist the older half of the flock runs toghether and the breeds sleep toghether and the young flock does the same the loose ends with no pair all sleep toghether.

    Well I am beginning to think he is racist. I have tried separating them but it just makes it worse.

    That is funny! When I had my roo, my hens would squable over who got to sleep next to him. When one got over by him that a hen didn't think should, she would go over and peck at her and take her place.

    Good luck with your situation. Hope it gets better. [​IMG]
