    You just might have to snap that rooster's neck and send him to the freezer. I don't like a rooster who beats up a hen or pullet.

    I hope the baby is ok. What a bad rooster. I took mine out because he was trying to mate with them and they are to little I think. They are 3 1/2 months and 2 1/2 months.

    Aww [​IMG]. I hope your babies alright, my rooster did that, only to my brother.
    But, I had ducks try and snap my first chicken [And my favorite]'s neck so I started crying and almost snapped the ducks neck.. but I didn't... I just sent the ducks away.

    Are you sure your 8 wk old is a pullet??? I'm wondering if it's a cockerel and the big roo is eliminating competition???? Or was trying to...

    Whether the baby is a roo or not, I wouldn't tolerate that in my flock. The big roo would end up in my soup pot if he doesn't take care of the babies.
