Hi all. I'll try to keep this short. Three months ago our neighbor's hen and rooster decided they wanted to take up residence here. Fine. They are both at least a year old. I have hens ( they haven't laid any eggs yet) who are four months old that I raised. The older rooster keeps 'violating' the older hen constantly to where she has a big sore on here back. And he doesn't let her out of the barn very often. Today I picked up the older hen and put her into the coop with my four month old hens. One of the Americanas attacked the older hen. The older hen is very, very timid and has always been that way since she showed up here. The reason I put the older hen in with my younger ones is so she could eat and quit being 'violated' by the rooster. Should I leave them be and settle it themselves? Or should I take her out of the coop, put her back in the barn and continue to have the rooster continue to put sores on her and limit her time out of the barn to eat and drink? I feel so bad for the older hen. All she wants to do is eat, drink and sleep in peace. Suggestions?
