    Dear all my rooster lost the fight two days before as i brrought on new rooster in the coop , the new one got dominated over my existing one who is the leader of the coop. When it seemed that he was loosing fight i separted him from the new one and sold back the new one which i brought bcoz i love my rooster. now he seems to be lonely not eating although some times crowing. I am very much worried about this situation and if some thing gets worst i will feel the responsibility for this as i brought the new rooster and then letting them fight. After the fight he got wounds and there was some blood but i put some antibiotic ointments now the scratches and wounds seems good but as i said the rooster seems to be lazy not eating but some times crowing. Does any body has any idea what to do for making him again the leader of the coop. Your valuable suggestions will be highly appreciated in this regard.

    Hello and. :welcome. It's hard to know whether he has just had his pride damaged or is perhaps just suffering from his wounds. Keep an eye on him and spoil him a little with some meal worms or a tin of sardines mixed with cooked rice. If he is just sulking , he will get over it. Listen for any breathing issues and watch for infection. :)

    Keep only one rooster and you wont have fights. If you have a large flock, then maybe a 10 to 1 hen to rooster ratio. Roosters spell trouble. You have to keep them separate to keep from fighting. Keep birds with open wounds separated from the rest, other ones will peck at the wounds. Hope yours recover soon. Wishing you best.
