    I'm new to chickens. We got ours in February. Some of our roosters must be starting to fight. This morning Donald Trump had blood down the front and on his feet. He has a cut on his waddle.i don't see anyone else with blood on them. Are the establishing pecking order? Should I clean the wound? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Pecking order and fighting over females are some of the main reasons roosters fight, how many roosters over how many hens?
