Does anyone keep all their roos in one big pen?
no but im gonna have to here in a little bit
sometimes I will put 12 to 15 in a pen for a week or so. Never have had any issues unless I throw in a hen. I also have the pen away and out of sight from the girls.
Okay. Seems the hens are harrassed by the ratio of roos to hens. It's stressing the hens.
I recently put 2 teenage roos in an empty broody pen. It's working out so well! Those little guys were driving me nuts, and the hens hated them. Now they aren't bothering anybody. And they get to live!
A bunch of roos living together usually do fine, especially if they were raised together, and they are some distance from hens.
Too many roos for the hens is very rough on the hens, on the other hand.
I have a duccle roo and OEGB roo that are together and they get along just fine. And i also have 4 other roosters together and they all get along fine.

I have 22 6mo. old cockerels that are in a bachelor pad. They all get along fine.
