Someone gave us a very large RIR rooster- I am guessing he is about 1 year old. He seems to be the eye candy of the ladies right now- he is big and beautiful and actually really sweet.

The issues is my 2 head roosters (It seems the have an agreement to be dual head roosters) are 2 little banties that combined weigh about as much as a single kleenex. They charge at Prince of the Reds (the RIR) and he is left to defend himself- he has never once charged at one of the roosters.

So- he could kill my silkies in like a milla-second.... I can't leave him to roam or free-range at all because it causes a cock-fight.

Is there anyway to mingle him in the flock or do I just need to re-home him?

The two flock roosters are not about to welcome him, and he is fully capable of killing them. It's a choice that you will have to make. I seriously doubt that they will coexist peacefully.

I agree, your current roosters just see him as competition. You need to decide which rooster you want to keep. Or split flocks up and keep them separate.
