I'm new to raising Chickens so please bear with my silly questions. I rescued 23 chickens Nov. 07 from their deaths (12 hens/11 Roos). Hubby built a gorgeous, completely closed in Coop complete with nesting boxes, roosts, and Heat. We separated the mature Roo's from the hens early Feb. 08. as we didn't want anymore chickens. We live on a small Ranchette allowing the Roo's to free-range, however they have their own large Coop to sleep at night. Now, almost 7 wks. later the five oldest Roo's have begun fighting with eachother. Three of them are worse than the others. We've separated them from eachother in their own individual pens as they were going to kill eachother. We ended up putting a third one back in with the girls just to keep him from fighting. The other two are a bloody mess--even squirting them with the garden hose doesn't deter them. My questions are: 1. Is this normal behavior and will it continue? 2. Is there anyway to stop the fighting? 3. Should we get rid of them? We so enjoy these guys..they're gorgeous! I'd hate to lose them. Thanks for any help you can offer.
