In the Brooder
- Nov 14, 2019
I have an established flock made up of five hens and one rooster with all of them being 7 months in age. Got the new pullets in March so they are now about 10 weeks old. Transitioned them successfully, they have been living together in the coop although still all real tentative about each other. The rooster will not let the new pullets out of the coop into the Run! Anytime they approach the door to go out he scares them back in. The pullets now have started the habit of going into the run after dark before I come to shut the door for the night since all of the other chickens are up in the roost. Can I break the rooster of this?
