    I would put the injured rooster in a dark box or dog kennel. Just let him rest, he may be in shock. He may or may not come out of it.

    The others I think might just be too much for your flock, size is a big indicator of pecking order. It might be not a good mix if you have several smaller breeds or birds. And if at 3 months they are as big as hens, well that would be a pretty tender dinner.
