    So I recently got 3 more Serema Chicks to add to my flock of already 1 Serema, which he is a rooster by the way. So in a total there are 3 roosters and 1 hen all different ages. (The female came as a pair with another roo so they are the same age). They fought at first but their pecking order has now been established so they are getting along really well.

    My main question is will the hen be alright with the boys? Planning to breed her just with her pair in the near future.

    One female with multiple males is never good. The poor girl will be battered and over bred.

    NO she isn't safe.

    Keep her with one male and put the other 2 in another pen. Or find more females to keep her company and have separate male and female pens.

    Ok I thought so, also thought it would be different since seremas were nicer then most but I guess not. Does anyone know how to build a small coop just for the two of them then?
