My Aunt used to always tell me to get roosters who were younger than the hens. She always had the most well behaved roosters too. She swore by this method and said that it taught the roos some humility and they were well mannered because they had to balance out their naturally dominant behavior by learning how to act around her hens who were already established. I don't know how much of this was just her luck with roos, but it always made perfect sense to me! Sounds like you might be in a perfect position to test that theory for yourself too.
