suddenly start attacking one of the hens???? The rooster is 3 months old, the hens are 10days older than him. This rooster has until Monday to find a home (hes on craigslist, I've called the ag dept and the local 4hs so far nothing) because i can't have roosters. He's been crowing for a few weeks. It used to be a couple times in the am, now it is through out the day and much louder. Today he decided he didn't like on of my hens and went after rher eally bad. Luckily I was there to break it up, but he flew at her like an eagle with his legs out in front, landed on her and started grabbing her and trying to shake her????!!!! Afetrwards he wouldn't let her near any of the food and she just huddled in the corner. When she got brave enough to try to sneak some grass, he immediately went after her again, very viciously. I ended up seperating her. Why would he do this, why just her? The other 3 hens are perfectly fine and he leaves them alone. I am 99% sure the one he is picking on IS a hen. I might also have to cull him myself, and I am really sad about this. I had him since he was a wee little baby "pullet". He has always been friendly to me and my kids and loves blueberries.
