    Twenty years ago I had 3 roosters and one female duck. Twenty years ago I was 12, I don't remember when they started to fight for with blood.

    Does anyone know about how many month of age, when roosters will start fighting til death?

    Because here I am with those 6 chickens and wondering if the Are they hens? are they roosters? are they going to fight?

    It's more a breed thing. but also an individual thing. I've never seen roosters get into a fight to the death, or even do much if any drawing blood. I keep dual purpose birds. I've had a dozen or more roosters in together until they were around 16 or 18 weeks. They were crowing, and they would squabble, but it was mostly posturing and chasing.
