    How can i stop my two toms from fighting? They fought for a total of 8 hours yesterday. I took one tom lastnite and put him in a pen in the garage because their heads and necks were bleeding so much and put the other in coop. This am i let out birds in back yard and then let the penned up tom in the front yard. Right away the two toms started fighting through the chainlink fence, so far for about 8 hours today cooing and pecking...Is there anything i can do?

    let them go and they will sort out the pecking order themselves. Seperating them will do no good unless you keep them seperated. I have seen ours fight for days on end.
