This morning started out normal. We are actually working on a separate pen in our coop for some new hens we are introducing to the flock. We have 3 roos and 3 hens right now. We knew time was against us because they are about 3 months old and the roos just started to get a bit aggressive. We have had one dominant roo, Pepper, since we got them when they were chicks. But now that they're older the other ones are trying to take a run at Pepper. This morning one of the roos jumped Pepper in a dirty fight. We are in the process of getting rid of our other roosters because we knew there would be problems. So now we are making 3 separate pens in the coop: one for the regular flock, one to separate the roos, and the other for the new hens. When I found Pepper, he was cowering by a rock with his head hidden. He actually let me pet him and hold him which isn't normal for any of our chickens since they're a bit skittish by nature. When I inspected his head I noticed a little raw spot. I didn't think anything of it and figured it would heal on its own because it was so tiny, the size of an eraser head. After keeping an eye on him, I've noticed he is completely separated from the rest of the flock which is not normal, and when he stretches his neck he has gashes on either side of his head. He is up and walking and eating, but now I cannot get close enough to see how deep the gashes are. I'm not sure if he is staying away from the rest of the chickens due to a hurt ego or what. One of the hens stuck around for a little bit after the fight but now she is with the rest. I know I can clean his wounds with peroxide and what not, but is there anything else I could be doing that I'm missing? Should we keep him in a separate spot from the rest? I'd hate to "punish" him for a fight he didn't start. I will say I was impressed though. After he got up from his hidey hole he tried going after the roo that jumped him. Poor little guy was ******! Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
