    It is time to replace a rooster that is just plain mean, I have his replacement, the replacement is 7 weeks old . How much will the young rooster pick up just by watching and being around the older rooster, or would it be better to just get rid of the older one and wait, meaning i would have to put the incubator away for awhile.here is a pic of my set up. the young one is in the small enclosed pen within the big run.[​IMG]

    Your younger roo will not need any lessons, when his hormones kick in he'll figure it out.
