3 different roos in a run

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by can you hear me now?, Jun 28, 2008.

  1. I plan on breeding 3 different types of chickens. Barred Rocks, Brown Leghorns, and Rhode Island Reds. Now the question is if i put all of these roos together, already are but still chicks, will i have to worry about them killing or seriously hurting each other? Or am I going to have to separate them so that I can keep everyone in order?[​IMG]

    I have about 11 roosters in one pen, with hens, added at different times and I've never had a problem, and they are easy on the girls too. But if you plan on breeding these different breeds and having pure breds you will have to seperate them anyway.
