Okay maybe just one cockerel and maybe not 'badly'...

... I'm starting to believe my beloved little Georgia peach is a cockerel. I still love my little Georgie porgie. I caught him grabbing on and holding on to the back of my prettiest little pullet's neck scruff. They are 7 weeks old today.

Will 3 roosters in a small flock cause issues if the roosters are all kept isolated from the hens? Would it work to divide the coop/run with chicken wire? Will the boys still fight over the girls if they can see but not touch?

Sometimes rooster flocks work, and sometimes they don't. There is a greater chance that they will work if they are isolated from the pullets/hens.
