Yes, like in picture.
When only one hen bred by a rooster he stays with her around the clock. With up to three hens rooster is rotated daily between pens at end of day so he is with a given hen every second or third day. Roosters used as such are very tame and walk between pens on their own. Takes time to get that down ahead of breeding season. You gotta be on toes to make certain he goes to proper hen pen and not to another rooster. With a more wiley cock used to cover two hens, I let him and both hens free a few minutes before dark. They feed before going roost on front porch. After dark I collect them and put hens back in respective cages and rooster in with appropriate hen. In reality he likely more than does job of covering hens during the 15-30 mminutes before going to roost but having him shack up with ladies keeps need for number of pens down.
sounds to me like youv'e got some pretty good boys there well thanks for all the info much appreciated
