    Unless you have lots of hens (25 or more) one roo is enough (or more than enough!) You can let them work it out unless it gets bloody in which case you need to separate them keep one and find a one home for the other.

    I would keep the less aggressive one as he will be a kinder "gentleman' to your hens.
