Rooster behavior

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I have a flock of 15 chickens and very soon I will be getting rid of three Silkie roosters that are 17 weeks old. The dominant rooster is one of the silkies. I also have an rir roo who I'm hoping will take control of the flock. These Silkie Roos will chase him around and pull out his feathers. So my question is since I'm getting of three roosters including the dominant one, will his temperament change at all? Like turn nasty or will he relax? He will still have a younger ba roo and maybe another Silkie roo with him.

No one knows except that if you only have one rooster and 15 or fewer hens, then that rooster will become the dominant roo by virtue of default.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.
