So, one of my hens had 6 baby chicks- 3 were hens and 3 were roos. I already have 'daddy' roo and now the 3 teenager roos. (I call them teenagers cause they are around 3 months old and are starting to be hormonal) I made the decision to keep them separated from the other hens (8 total including the 3 young ones) because I didn't want the teenagers to start tormenting their sisters or their mom, or the other ones. 'Daddy' roo was a teenager when we got him and he got right down to business and got mom 'pregnant' within about 1 month.... The problem is that the roos can see all the hens and I know that they want to be with them, so they run along the fence all the time. I can't really close off the view thou. Anybody got any thoughts on that? Number two is, that it seem the 3 young ones are starting to fight with each other a bit. I see them posture and attack each other a few times during the day. It never lasts long, but should I be concerned? I am hoping that they are just working things out, being all boys in their own space. So far 'daddy' roo has not participated in the fighting. On a side note- daddy roo is a bantam rooster, and all my grown hens are full size hens. The young roos are already taller than daddy- will that be a problem you think? thanks for your input.... maybe I just worry too much and things will be okay. I am planning on making the 3 young roos lunch and dinner- they are 3 months old now and a mix between speckled Sussex (mom) and red laced bantam Wyandotte (dad). When do you think I can butcher the roos? Sorry, for the varying topics in this post- I started typing and thought about a few different things.
