I was wondering what could of caused this they have been together for 6 months.Big Red is older, Rocky's younger.
This is Big Red.
This is Rocky.
Not to worry. Rocky is at the age he will now question Big Red's flock master status.
Sometimes they may have days where there might be a small scuffle for dominance, but it usually doesn't escalate. As long as they aren't seriously hurting one another, it's actually better to let them work out their pecking order, themselves, so they can live together in peace.
If one bird is set on really hurting the other, then it would be better then if they are separated, but this sounds more like a normal occurrence for a younger cockerel to try to get top bird billing.
