    I have a whole slew of roos, BUT I also have a large flock. So my suggestion for you is:

    get more hens!

    I agree...it's the perfect excuse to get more hens [​IMG]
    If that's not an option you would need to look at options for seperating them. I only have 2, but others have many roos housed in a batchlor pad.
