    I'm in between coops and pens at the moment and my flock roo has been exceptionally hard on the girls lately. I am separating my pullets and cockerals today and was thinking of putting the flock roo in with the 6 cockerals. They are 14-18 weeks old. The girls really need time to feather back out and heal up. What do you think?

    Where they were not raised together the older Roo may kill the younger. Is there anyway you can make 2 seperate pens out of where ever they will be?
