ISO Advice re: ensuring roosters get along. I've had a Japanese bantam for 3 years with a predominantly standard size flock (occasionally I have bantam hens, none at the moment). Last year I kept one standard cockerel out of my hatch and for many months he was subordinate to the rooster. One day the tables were turned and there must have been a fight (a little damage to the bantam's comb). I separated them for a few days (within view of each other), but as soon as I let the cockerel out of his pen he went after the bantam roo, who was clearly scared of him. I re-homed the 10 month old cockerel. I've now got one of his 9 month old sons. He is subordinate to the roo, but gets chased when he tries to mate with the hens. Is there a way to promote some harmony or am I facing another situation of having to re-home one of them? I'd like to keep them both.
