Ok, My plans are to breed WHeaten Marans, FBCM's and Birchens. I have a Wheaten Marans cockerel, 25 week old that looks good, he is currently in the coop/run with my layer flock. I have hatched out 2 FBCM Cockerels, they are currently 15 weeks old, and I also have a Cuckoo Marans cockerel of the same age. The last 3 cockerels are in my "breeder" coop/run with pullets of the same age, 1 FBCM, 1 Blue splash, 1 Wheaten and a couple of others that I am not going to breed (yet). WHen I get ready to breed I am going to separate accordingly, but my current question is.... the WHeaten in one pen starts crowing so they all go back and forth pretty much for hours... Wuld it be best to put all of the cockerels in the same pen together until I start breeding later? Will that calm them down any? The cuckoo Marans will be going to freezer camp real soon, even though he is very good looking (unless I can determine he is a blue... he is very light blueish tinted compared to my other cuckoo roo I used to have). I am hoping to get a couple of decent Birchen Marans cockerels and of course pullets out of the eggs I have in the incubator currently.
