We think we have his final chapter written, but if anyone can offer advice, we'll try it. The rooster in question is a 6 month old EE who belongs to my friend. She has him with 6 hens. He's a beautiful bird, BUT: he's not gentle with his girls at all. They all have bald caps. One poor girl has lost most of her back feathers. He isn't very "courtly"...he's more of a "Oh, I see you there! wham, bam" sort of fellow. We thought maybe we could add some more hens to the flock to take the pressure off his "favorite" (who would rather not be) But, he really struggles with letting other hens near his group. I've been taking care of him and his flock at my house this week, and I thought maybe his behaviour was b.c of stress.. One of my silikie pullets walked near his pen, and he flew at the door, squawking and screaming like she was a fox or something! Poor little silkie was so shocked she ran into a wall. SO, I know what I would do, but what would you do? THanks!
