I had three roosters, two are gone because they were mean and tearing up my hens. The one I have left ~the youngest of the three~ is a Light Brahma that is just over a year old. He is very calm around people even young kids. He is very good to the girls mostly. He can get a bit over excited about matting. I think he might have picked up some bad habits from the other Roos. The problem is the girls need time to heal and grow their feathers back. It has taken me about 2 months to build and get ready a coop and run so I can separate him. With him being with the girls for over 2 months is separating him going to make him mean? I have 8 hens that are a year old now and they all need a feather growing break.
