Can I successfully separate my roo from the girls? He apparently is in his teenage hormone years (about 9 mos old) and won't leave the hens alone. He has 10 hens and he has mated them until they are terrified of him, they are missing back feathers, and now some are starting to lose neck feathers. Can I separate him for a while without him becoming aggressive? I have a way to separate him, although he will still be able to see his girls. Will this frustrate him because he can't get to them? He started to show aggression toward me but I put him in his place and so far so good. I'm worried if separating him will make him agressive since he can't do what roos are supposed to do. Has this happened to anyone else and what did you do? Does anyone know how long a roo is in their teenage years? I really don't want to get rid of him, but I may have to because my egg production has become almost nonexistent so I know my girls are stressed!
