Our rooster, Precious Boy, has a nasty morning routine. Every morning he aggressively chases, pecks, and bites the girls (Gloria and Mable). Then the rest of the day they all get along fine; eating together, dust bathing together, laying beside each other, etc. Now Precious Boy (speckled sussex) is 5 months old, the girls 4 months old. Gloria (white leghorn) is larger than Mable (light brown leghorn). So as of right now, the girls are not yet laying nor showing any obvious signs. But I worry about whether or not this behavior of the roo's will continue when they do. Why does he do this every morning? I assume to reassert dominance, but why so aggressively. We keep one of his wings clipped to the girls can fly up to get away from him. He is really mean to them in the mornings. The girls scream when he gets them, cluck as they try to run away from him, then eventually end up sitting up on top of the coop just to get away from him until he settles down. Is there anything we can do to put an end to this aggressive morning routine? Has anyone else had this problem? Advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
