I have 6 hens a year old and 2 roosters and 1 pullet 4 months old. The 3 younger ones where hatched and raised by a broody hen in my flock from shipped eggs. About two weeks ago the roosters started mating with the hens. No problem at first, then yesterday morning the two roosters started chasing my Australorp around the yard to mate with her. She is not the dominate hen. The creole rooster was the most aggressive pulling feathers from her neck. She hid under the shed and I was going to separate the roosters from the flock last evening when they went to roost. I tried catching the roosters before that without success. Apparently they got to her during the day as that afternoon I found her hiding in the coop her head and neck ripped open to meat. She is recovering in the house right now, doing pretty good eating and drinking. The roosters are in a pen by themselves. I was planning on keeping the creole rooster for breeding but I won't if this is not something they will outgrow. I don't want hen aggressive roosters. I'd rather have chicken soup. Any suggestions from old hands?
