I'm coming to you guys again with another question! I think this fits under behavior. How many of you have a successful flock dynamic with one rooster and two or three hens? When I was a kid, we had a RIR rooster and hen and a buff Orp hen. Peeps, the rooster, absolutely tore our Buff Orp apart. We ended up having to get rid of him and it took her two years to grow her feathers back. Are all roosters like that, or did we just have a domineering rooster? We had one Phoenix rooster years later that was very nice, but he was a capon, so I don't think that counts. What about a banty rooster with standard hens? Would they be as pushy? Thanks!
