The easiest solution is to rehome one or both cockerels, meanwhile housing them separately. Do you need both of them, and do you have the space and number of hens and pullets to work out for two roosters?
Having enough space, hiding places (not dead ends), free range time, and hopefully resolution of their dominance challenges, things could settle down. Or not. Then, you will need to have separate housing for them, or rehome one or both.
Do you have the time to supervise them when together?
Having one kill the other isn't better!
Thank you. Please tell me these are hens
Please tell me thes 2 are hens.
Bothe started at each other within 5 minutes together today. Started with a stare down, then neck bobbing, I seperated them when the pecking started.
What about the sounds produced. Mine make a particular vocalization when when battling as immature birds.
No sounds. In less than 5 minutes together they fight
Listen closer, and watch for subtle signals giving before fighting commences. My games and American Dominiques do it so likely all cockerels do.
I watched them square up about 6 times today and they were silent.
You are saying they are making no sounds? Can you record a video with sound and post on something like youtube?
