I have two non SOP RIR roos with 16 hens of the same, and 4 L. Brahma hens. The beta roo spends much of his time looking for a girl and chasing them, and running from the alpha, who pounds him if he ever tries to mate a hen. this sort of goes on all day; the alpha will often chase him in the main coop (10 x 16) which creates a bit of anxiety for the girls, too. 1. I am thinking of housing the beta all by his lonesome, but i can see him just being frustrated all the time? But it would make for greater peace for the rest of the flock. ALSO, THEIR RUN IS 6,900 SQ. FT., but still, the 'chase is on' often throughout the day................. 2. I have also put out some feelers on CL for a free rooster i could give him as a companion. But I am afraid of bringing in disease. 3.OR, I could let him mate one of the girls this fall and hatch out a companion for him...........? any thoughts? But I really feel that I have to separate him soon? So, to house him alone............even full time.............thoughts? thanks!
