    I had to roosters so i gave the mean one away... he was the king of the roost.. I have another roo that likes 2 of my ducks... he won't have anything to do with my hens or other ducks... will he ever learn to like my hens(and leave the two ducks alone)... or is he a lost cause... he is very pretty just confused

    When I gave my former alpha roo away, the girls were real resistant to the second roo and he was unsure what to do with them; never having had 14 hens to himself.
    He got used to it and the girls finally figured out it was him or nothing.
    Just give your roo time.
