    I also have one tom and two hens, also bourbon reds, also 9 months old... Mine have sparred but I see it as establishing who is top hen, the smaller one was first to mate and she thought she had something on the larger hen but she was wrong... [​IMG]
    I think if they are not drawing blood it would be ok to leave them
