pecking order

For some reason, Chupa and Manny have started terrorizing Frank when they are in the coop together.  They beat him up pretty good a couple of days ago so now Frank roosts on my front porch at night.  When I let the other two out in the morning they chase him around a bit but spend the rest of the day being friends.  I tried them all in the coop together after a few nights of the new routine and they went right after him again.  Everyone is much more content now that Frank his own bedroom.  87,98,67,0,B

Maybe Chupa and Manny are a bad influence on each other. I wonder what would happen if you let Frank and Manny roost together? Or Frank and Chupa?

My grandmother had n effective method of stopping rooster fights. She made a large pot of chicken and homemade dumplings, with the loosing rooster. That was even better than her homemade cinnamon rolls - which disappeared as fast as she could bake them. Don & I had the chore of catching & killing the young fryer type chickens. But we never attempted to catch and wring the neck of grandmother's mean old roosters!

Maybe Frank snores.
