    i just bought a rooster from the 4H, hes been quarantined, now its time to begin putting him with my flock. i have a rooster and realize they will fight to establish pecking order, but should i just let them fight it out? or should i intervene? the new one i just bought is 7 year old black rose-comb and more than capable of holding his own due to being around roosters who were bigger than i thought roosters could get, my current rooster is approximately 15 weeks old and is a white standard.
