No, I know roosters harass hens. That's what they do. The problem is that this one rooster, Casanova, is pecking the heck out of any of the girls who want to lay eggs. He comes to their nest box and pecks the heck out of them until they leave. I've caught him and discouraged this behavior to a point where he left them alone to lay their eggs for a week, but today I caught him again and now the other hens are trying to shield the laying hen. After one stern correction, he did it again, so I pulled him out of the pen and put him in with the ducks and turkey who aren't laying. I think he's trying to tell me "Soup is Good Food." The other rooster, Crooked Toes, is actually a perfect gentleman when it comes to his ladies and lets them lay their eggs. But I'm thinking I can get a better rooster than Casanova who will let the girls lay in peace. What do you think? Soup is good food?
