OK i am baffled as to what to do.I NEED SUGGESTIONS!!!! all my roosters have been breed here and raised here from my very first one 8 yrs ago and they have all gotten along for the most part except for pecking order squabbles. so this is the problem i am having now..... my main big rooster (4 yrs) got sick and he stopped walking, so we brang him in the house, has been in about a month, he started walking again but has not fully recuperated, he is not very balanced, (he is also missing part his toes). so while he was in his 1/2 banty son took over(1yr). anyways when he was well enough we put him back out and he was ready to take back over, but is son is vicious and attacked and basically kicked his butt a few times cause he can't balance so he retreated, BUT the banty won't stop, big roo will RUN from the SON and he just keeps following him and attacking, so i took the banty away for a week kept him in the house, i just put him out in the coop last night while everyone was asleep hoping it would be like when i get new hens and he would accept him , BUT once again i heard loud crowing 7 this morning go out to check and the banty has my big rooster chased into the front yard and he has his head shoved behind a box and a wall and the banty is just sitting there crowing and feathers on the ground. What can i do, my big guy has resigned to being just a chicken not a breeder or head flock master, he knows his condition and is surrendering it to his son but the son just won't stop harassing him. I just want my old rooster to be able to live out what little life he has left in peace he's been a good rooster. Also i only have 5 girls, my husband thought maybe if we got more it might help? the girls we got now are fine with him being around and one would rather be with him. or does it sound like he will need a separate coop/run for himself, mine pretty much free range the yard. sorry so long I'm just looking for ideas thanks in advance!
