I have a young crazy rooster ... he only goes after young pullets ... he has just reached sexual maturity ... he wont go near older hens or pullets of the same age as him .... starting to look like all the young ones will need to be locked away from him !![emoji35] [emoji35] [emoji35]

Probably he is scared of the older girls. I agree you will need to protect the younger girls from him. He could easily damage or even kill some of them.

Yep - just the cougars until he learns some manners.
He should calm down when laying slows over the next few month and by Spring everyone will be laying and more mature and he will have become a gentleman and will be confident enough to spread his favours across the age options.
