    I have 3 golden comet roos and plan on keeping 2. One has almost totally outgrown the teenager behavior (trying to mount any animal chicken or not that moves) and is being a good boy courting, feeding and such. The other 2 are driving me up the wall, or more my hens. One will be gone in a few days. The other I hope to keep. Honestly in the begining I wanted to get rid of mature roo he went through the behavior first and generally not really as people friendly, but I have to look out for my hens first. How long does it normally take to outgrow the behavior? If the other one doesn't outgrow soon he will have to go as well and he is my buddy.

    Also they are about 4 1/2 months and look good size. Do you think there will be enough meat on them?

    I would give it a month. Then decide, isn't that about when you started liking the other rooster again?
