    I don't know what I'm going to do I have too many roos and nobody wants them...I have one SLW, 2 Dutch Bantams, 1 Dark Cornish, 1 Polish, and 1 Naked Neck all very sweet so culling is out..and I'm going to use my NN and Polish for breeding... A while ago I put on here about my SLW & one of my Dutch Bantams fighting well their still at it ugh

    I'd pair up a few dominant and submissive roos, if you have any like that, and pen them in a nice sized place without them being able to see any hens. Hopefully that will cut down on fighting, and you can rotate them in the flock for breeding purposes.

    Well the SLW is penned with my dark cornish, my two Dutch Bantams are free ranged, and my Naked Neck is penned with my polish.....The only ones that try to fight are the SLW and the more dominate Banny

    I would so take one if we didn't already have about 10 roos of our own!
