    roosters have a huge sex drive. good rule of thumb is 10 girls to 1 guy. If you prefer the roosters, get rid of the hen. If you prefer the hen and really want the roosters, make separate spaces for them or get more girls.

    I have one roo who is very sweet but is very driven. 8 girls aren't enough for him so now he has 10 adults and about 10 POL pullets. He's gonna be in hog heaven soon.

    But yeah, she needs to be separated so she can heal.

    Leg dosmt seem broken, but it looks a little swollen at the ankle, I have three roos, and I don't know where to put them, since I only have one coop, nowhere to put then, I guess ill have to take some to he stockyards.

    Can you put the big offenders in a cage until you can sort it out? I don't mean so suggest you kill them. Her leg might just be sprained.
