    I have a EE pullet (so I think)20 weeks old, that attacks the 2 young roos ( sultan and Ameracauna about 13 weeks) whenever she gets near them. She will go out of her way to go after them. I had hoped to keep them both by putting the Ameracauna in the coop/run with this EE. Now I wonder if that will ever be possible? [​IMG]

    I'm new to having a roo so any suggestions or help would be great. Thanks!

    That is normal. Just make sure the roosters have room to run away when they get into trouble with her. In a few days to two weeks the pecking order will be established & the feather pulling will get better.
