    Do roosters usually start to fight amongst themselves? I've seen everything from in the brooder to six+ months old. Is there even an 'usually' about it, or is it just super individual?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    There isn't really a "usually" that I know of. Their hormones kick in somewhere around 16 weeks, so behavior will usually change then, of course.
