In the Brooder
- Sep 13, 2013
My old flock is down to just five assorted hens and a rooster. They have been together four years now and most still lay though not but maybe three times a week. BUT the rooster has been picking on one of the oldest. He is always a very well mannered mutt and she is a buff orpington. He doesn't want her to eat or even return to the pen at night. She gets her feathers all puffy but otherwise keeps her distance. What on earth is going on??? I don't know if I should correct one or the other and how?
