My BR rooster has been very mean to my hens. He just moved up in the pecking order above my Bantam Roo. He is tearing up my hes backs, heads, combs. And tonight in the coop he bit my silkies head and was just holding her and she was screaming. I almost killed him, it just made me so mad to see him do that to the sweet little thing.But i didnt, i like him but he is not worth it. If i throw him out of the coop in the yar, how cold of temperature can a hicken survive. if i throw him in a coop with food and water, with some protection do you think he will live. I dont want to make him freeze to death. We live in ohio, and it get into the teens often. He would make a good meal!
