    Hen fights

    Over the years I have had hens fight on the yard it usually ends with one hen finally running off the other one but have seen some good ones give it a try on the yard.3 weeks ago I had a Gracil hen I finally turned out to let her freshen up I was talking to my son he said look at them hens they were seriously going at it and looked good enough to show-lol-little while still at it I caught them up seperated next morning still at it I thought it was over penned one they got hitting wire turned them back out this went on for 2 weeks both were Gracils I sure plan on breeding them again. Today I watched 2 pullets a blackGrey and a Brownred break waist high and hitting hard enough to knock out feathers I finally broke it up as they were doing damage one of the best shows on the yard have seen in years.Weather turned off cool at night figure they getting up feeling froggy-lol-Jim

    I have a hen that has me convinced she will fight 2 the death anytime she has a clutch following her. She fought any hen that came near her and picked a few wire fights her toes are messed up now.lol. My wife was breaking her up constantly while I was at work.

    Watch out for those crazy trouble-making hens.

    My experience raising gamefowl, I have notice that a few of my hens could fight and as game as any of my cocks. They’ll kill any hen that crosses their path, and for domination she’ll fight hen after hen after hen. So what does this indicate?
