I have one mature rooster, and a pretty mature second rooster, and both get along great and are gentle with the ladies, and they never fight with each other. I also have 18 adult hens and three 2.5 month old juveniles. A lady can't have roosters so we are taking him in. She says he is really sweet, but I know he is still young.
She is bringing him over tomorrow. Should I add him directly to the flock and see how he does? Or would you suggest I keep him cordoned off, and if so for how long? Or is it better to cordon him off for the rest of the day then add him to the flock tomorrow night when they are all roosting?
Thank you for your help and suggestions.
We anticipate hatching more chicks so the number work out for having three roosters, from everything that I have read here. Plus they have a large free range area and a large roosting area.
