Sorry everyone this is my second message today. I will not go through the entire story, but I now have one rooster and 4 hens together. I started with 5 roosters and 4 hens. Anyways, my hens are missing their feathers all on their backs and some wing feathers/broken. This started when all roosters where present. They just have not grown back in. Question - When I add the 4 new hens will my rooster slowly be diverse and mate with all of them? Not sure if I need to get rid of the rooster. He is the gentle one that I kept and I know the ratio needs to have more hens. There will be 1 to 8. Thank you for your help Worried about the hens.
