I got a rooster, which from pictures appears to be a silver laced wynadotte. He is aggressive, and chases the wife around, and has attacked me several times. This wouldn't be a big deal to me except I have small children. I wanted to hatch some eggs, but he is the wrong breed anyway. My hens are buff orps. That is the reason for having a rooster in the first place. I wan't to get a more gentle rooster so I can hatch my replacements. I was thinking of going with some more buff orps or maybe getting some white rocks. All the hens have their feathers gone above the tail on their backs. The hens are getting sunburned I assume the rooster does this when he mounts. Will having more hens for the rooster reduce this? I thought maybe dividing his attentions might help. I have one hen that drags a wing and limps. Just noticed yesterday. She has a gash on her back that is healing. I wonder if she didn't get hit with a spur, and the soreness affects her gait and her ability to hold her wing up. Does this make sense? I separated her from the others, but I let them all out today. Anyway, I guess my plan of hatching more hens isn't going to work, because the hens won't go broody again. So the rooster will be soup when I get the time. I will replace him with a buff orp or a white rock.
