I have three roosters. Buff Orpington, Blue Orpington, and Ameracauna. I have 30 hens. About a week ago, one of my hens sides was ripped open. We figured it was from the rooster. I looked at all the spurs and none of them are over a half an inch. Checking over the rest of the flock, I noticed 5 more hens with broken feathers, and wear spots. Also a Buff orpington with a scratch on her side. So I separated all these hens from the rest of the flock to give them time to heal and rest. One evening while raking, I heard my son screaming. All THREE roosters surrounded my five year old son. They were jumping up at him and trying to attack. Good thing I had the rake. I never thought roosters would work together, is this a common thing? My Buff Orpington rooster attacked my five year old the next day. He snuck outside one evening, just to come running in crying saying the chicken hurt him. He had scratches on his back. The Buff orpington is going to get the axe today as he seems to be the most aggressive. But I do worry about the behavior of the other two also. The other two have not yet, singly attacked my son. But all three were there the day they were attacking together. I only saw the orpingtons jump at my son, but the Ameracauna was there too. Is this normal, for them to work together? Also last night we thought we were going to loose a hen. My daughter brought a sex link hen in, her eyes were closed, my daughter said she was just laying on the ground. We could see no wounds. So I had my daughter bring her in the house in the dog kennel. Today she seems alert. My daughter said the roosters were all mating with her and she was crying. What the heck!? Is this normal behavior? It seems they just mate with a few hens. So now, in the next hour, we will be down to two roosters. Chicken soup for supper tomorrow. But will this solve my problem? It will be a 1 to 15 ratio. Should I separate the roosters until mating time? I do want to hatch eggs. I have a separate area that was intended for injured or mama hens. The coop part is 2x8 the covered run 5x10. Could I safely keep two roosters in that area? Or should I see if with the most aggressive rooster gone, if things calm down? Never thought roosters would be such a pain!
