    Hi there-

    What is happening? Is the rooster making her bleed? Mating can be really rough looking.

    Do you have one rooster and one pullet? You need five more pullets. Or one more pullet and one fewer roosters.

    Separate them. Then give us more details. How old are they? How many birds do you have? How are they housed? And give us as much detail as you can, exactly what he is doing. I agree my first thought is you have a cockerel reaching sexual maturity and a pullet who is not ready.

    Welcome to BYC.

    I agree with the above you need to separate them until it's all figured out. Sounds like you're going to have to do a little flock juggling.
