I have 14 hens. They are 17 weeks old. I have one Rooster. My hens are not laying yet. I just got their outside run completed. They spend the entire day up on the roost. The rooster is on the ground waiting for them... and noone wants to get down. They don't want to go outside - because then they are on the ground and he can get to them. I put down cracked corn the other day - hens on the roost, rooster on the ground waiting. The hens would not even come down for cracked corn. I have three BO's who are his "favorites". If he is outside and I put them out, they can't wait to get back in away from him. My question is - is this normal? Should I wait it out and see if they adjust? Or should I try to rehome him? He is not friendly - doesn't want to be touched, but is not mean. He is really pretty. Just a little rough on the girls right now. This is my first time raising chickens.
