    If I were to keep several roos in a pin together, with no females, would they get along okay?

    I will have a Cuckoo Maran, Rhode Island Red, White Leghorn, and either Buff Orpington and/or Black Australorp... what do you guys think?

    I'm thinking if that works out, it'd be better than building a MILLION different pins for all the different breeds... I can just keep the girls together, the boys together, then put them in groups when I want fertilized eggs.

    As long as the boys were raised together and can't see the girls, they "should" get along just fine (from my own experiences).

    Hope this helps!

    I have a Rooster cave ( pen ) for just the boy's to hang out in, once they determine the pecking order ( a few days ) everything was cool. I keep all my extra Roo's and cull roo's in there together 6 now, no problem. Easy peezy cheezy.
