Okay, hello everyone! So, here is the story: my boyfriend's parents went a little chicken buying crazy a few months back and bought way too many. They got four pairs of beautiful banty roo and hens, but unfortunaly put them all together in a small cage. I personally dislile caging chickens. Anyway, one roo decided to kill off one of the others and maimed another. Now the two survivers besides himself are paired each with two females while he was stuck in a tiny cage on his own. Felling bad for the little guy, i asked if they wanted me to take him to my house since i have a rather diverse group of my own free-range chickens. Thwy told me sure cause he is too small and young to butcher otherwise. So, i took him home tonight and sat him in a cage in the barn with my flock of 26 hickens. the barn is open front, so they go in and out even with the gate shut, as they please. So, back to the reason I am posting. So far, out of my own 3 banty roos and 2 austrolorp/americana roos, i havent had any problems with killing or fighting. They chase each other and bicker over food, but not much else.also they are about 4-5 months old. I feel that most of the reason they get along is because they get to free-roam all they want on my property and use the barn when they feel like it/at night. I always see them in thier own little groups. So, do you think this new little (maybe 3-4 month old?) Roo is going to get along with my flock, or try to kill/ be killed? I feel like most of his problem was the confinment with three other roos before. Of course i am going to keep him seperated for a day or two tk let them get the feel of him around. I am hoping they treat him like a low ranker, and since my boys and girls are a mix of banty breeds and large fowl, he will be shown his place if need be. So, does this sound reasonable, or do yoy think I'm wasting my time?thanks!
