Our rooster is MEAN! He is a barred rock and VERY BIG! All of my ladies have bare spots on their backs from where this brutal rooster is mounting them. I have not seen any blood, but the skin where the feathers have been worn off doesn’t look good either. I put aprons on my ladies during the cold months to protect them, but it’s way too hot to leave the aprons on the hens during the summer. BUT, I don’t know what else to do! I would love to get rid of this nasty rooster … but my husband says that he is an effective protector for the flock. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
