I have five roos in one of my pens. The five boys get along great, but on occasion it seems they will gang up on a hen and chase her and bother her so much that she refuses to leave her perch. There have been about five "victims" of this kind of behavior so far, and I was isolating the girls in my extra dog kennel until they recovered and got some of their confidence back. Of course, if I keep removing the girls, that doesn't solve the problem, though--they'll still eventually choose another hen to pick on. I'm not interested in getting rid of the roos (well, some can go if I can find them good homes, but I want to keep most of them). So I decided to switch the beat-up hens with the roosters, and I have all of the boys from that pen plus a couple more (and my male chukar because he's as much a perpetrator of harassing the hens as the roosters). So far they're pacing dramatically and making sharp movements like piranhas. Not hurting each other or anything, though. My question is, if you've had a bachelor pen, how did it work out? Did the guys settle down and end up fairly content? Or should I brace myself for drama and more bird sorting? I'll work it out regardless because I can shuffle birds until peace is restored to the chicken kingdom, but it'll be awfully convenient if my boys can just have their own place while the girls are able to relax. Give me your bachelor pen experiences and stories so I know what to expect!
