I have had chickens for about 4 years, so I'm still learning about the various chicken behaviors. I have a question about what happens when you have 2 roosters. My first rooster, Peter, has been leader of the flock for a couple of years now. The newest roo, Ernest (born 9/1/06 during Tropic Storm Ernesto!) is trying desperately to claim some of the hens, to no avail. If I get new pullets, will Peter automatically claim them as his own too, or will Ernest get a chance to start his own little harem? There seems to be much competition between the two roos and I don't have enough space to completely separate them.
