Just moved 4 cockerels to their own run, they are next to the main flock. Are there any challenges when free ranging rooster flocks? Can I rotate days -- roosters out one day and the rest of the flock the next? How do others handle it?

Just wondering if the roosters will free range normally or hang out beside the main flock pen all day.

Flocks can be rotated for free range. Yes the roosters will most likely hang out by the main flock pen. If that flock contains a rooster, they will most likely fence fight.

Thanks. The main flock has two oeg bantam roosters, the rooster pen shares the same fence so they see each other all day anyway.
