Yep. When it is a rank settling thing, separating just prolongs it because they don't get to fully settle it for once n all. If determined, they will just keep trying to fight every time they are back together until it's truly settled between them.
If the rank has been settled and Heisenburg has accepted his new position.. don't be too surprised if Ozzy likes to chase him around a bit now and then. That will taper off. Not a good idea to put both in close confinement for now though....
One thing to watch out for confined birds is not to have anything where one bird can be cornered with no way out... they cannot understand the loser is stuck and really cannot get away so they can get frustrated and keep pecking at the head. And give hiding places- I've used plywood pieces stuck diagonally in a corner(two exits NOT one), large leafy limbs etc.. Learned this with pheasants where male on female aggression can be a problem.
Got it! No more intervention. *Sigh* Time to put the mothering instincts aside and let the boys be boys. Luckily they each have their own houses and will be separated when locked up tonight.
I'm actually wondering now if Heisenberg came out the winner. Ozzy has been hanging out in his pen for hours, avoiding the rest of the flocks, while Heisenberg is out strutting his stuff as usual. Ozzy's also now missing a point from his comb. I guess I'll know for certain once I've watched them for a while tomorrow.
