Son ill try and make this short as possible. i wanted a rooster so someone emailed and said they had 2 but they'd like to sell one in particular because hes dominated and hes trying to become king of there roost. but they already have a older rooster they like and the other guy is slow and easy going he don't have interest in becoming the leader. so i bought the dominate Barred Rock rooster hes a year old very big guy. so hes been in my barn for 2 hours and i went out to do evening chores and he mated one of my little hens already. so i have a couple questions 1# well she lay a egg now because none of my hens have laid eggs since fall so if one does ill now its her. #2 well he eventually calm down with mating. i only ask because i have one small hen who got in to a bad fight with a bigger hen i used to have a couple months ago she was bleeding and in ruff shape i had 2 hen turkeys who picked on her too. so when he tried to mate her she freaked out and i stopped him. i guess because she was attacked in the past shes scared of him. and because i saved her from a few attacks shes became a pet more then the other chickens she follows me around and eats out of my hand. i don't want the new rooster to kill her trying to mate her. are rooster like male ducks , i know male duck will basically rape a female duck just to do there job.
