    is good or bad, they have been fighting every now and then. at fisrt broke it up, then let it happen for a bit. till one backed off. the domique is winning over the sexlink, then when the dom crows the sexlink goes nuts. will they get used to the pecking order after a while, the hens don't seem to mind and its funny how each rooster try to win over the hen. also the hens dont seem stressed when it come to mating,the roos hardly do it. will there fighting also effect laying.

    They will eventually settle in and find a happy medium, just let them work it out. I have a few adult Roo's in pen and they work it out fine.
