You all know this is my first time raising chickens. Earlier this week, I noticed Pippa (Dutch bantam, surrogate mama hen) was limping. She has just come out of her broodiness AGAIN but was still sleeping in the laying box at night. The 16 week old little Serama rooster that she raised from 1 day old, was pecking at her and she was limping away from him. I brought her in the house hoping she didn't have bumblefoot. She sat in Epsom salt water for about 10 minutes, then added triple antibiotic ointment and bandage. She slept in the bathroom. Next day I figured out it was scaly leg mite on her right foot. So I stood her up and soaked her foot in vegetable oil. All the scales are now gone and she is walking normal (and pooping every 3 feet). (I let her know that 2-ply Cottonelle was not cheap!) Finally today (Sat.), she woke me up crowing just like the serama rooster. HA After her breakfast of tuna, I took her back out to the shed/coop. She immediately went for the rooster and started fighting him. It was beak to beak, chest to chest, up in the air and he would dart under her legs and come around and start fighting her again! This did not let up. So I put her in the shed part and left him and the serama hen in the coop and run. I ran here to ask about this. He is still out there crowing. Is she attacking him because he was picking on her when she was sick? Also, I have a concrete floor in my shed and the back (coop) has shavings on the floor. I am presently cleaning that out trying to remove all the dirt and dust. Thanks in advance.
