Tom's will repeatedly fight, the pecking order will change each time, and the fighting will begin again. With the number of hens you have I would go down to one Tom.

I also have two toms and one just reached maturity and the fighting is brutal. I keep them separated right now.

Btw do either of you know how to create a new thread on the mobile version here? I just joined last week. Do I need to wait a while before I can create my own new threads? Or do I have to use the desktop version?
Thanks
