    As it turns out, I have two roosters. the crew is about 4 mos old now. RI red rooster has been picking on the hens every morning and throughout the day, the Buff Orp rooster usually comes to the rescue of the hens, pecking at the RI. I raised them all from chicks and I'm sort of attached to the girls and realize it's just nature but the cocky little red rooster is about to become dinner at any moment.

    Any advice would be appreciated [​IMG]

    I recommend the Crock Pot method.

    I do love orpingtons, but I know what you're going through.
    I have banished one young buff orp cockerel to the 'outer limits' because of the way he was harassing my girls.
    nothing has eaten him yet so I guess I will, eventually, but for now he's eating bugs in my backyard.

    Got a white banty of some kind acting the same way. [​IMG] he got banished to chicken jail a x-large portable dog crate . I am waiting til my buff orp roo gets grown in enough to put in with the big girls . The little roo is gonna hit the pot proably this weekend. [​IMG] He came by mistake he was supposed to be a orp roo. [​IMG] It didn't take long to figure out he wasn't the right roo. [​IMG] Crock pot maybe your best bet as well.
