We became the owners of a hen a few months ago when she wandered onto our property and never left. We had been talking about getting chickens so what the heck, we let her stay. Fast forward 3 months...I ran across an ad for a free 4 month old rooster, so I called and after speaking with the owner I decided to pick him up today. By the way, our hen is free range, she sleeps in a box we had on the front porch, up on top of the swamp cooler.
Well, I got the rooster home, put him on the ground to meet our hen Delilah and she puffed up and pecked him and he pecked her and after a few mutual peckings suddenly the rooster got very aggressive snd started attacking my hen. Is this behavior normal? Is there something else I need to do to introduce them? I put him in a hutch I have with food and water so hes gine for now but I don't want him to have to stay cooped up. Please advise.
