I have a single RIR cockerel that is too rough with the girls. He is just Mr hormones (probably about 22 weeks old) and will. not. leave. them. alone. So I have him locked up in a separate pen during the day (8x8) while I try to find him a new home (or pot). I do have a larger pen approx 16x24 available in a few days, once I fix the coop addition (aka..build it from scratch). I have 11 (argh) 8 week old cockerels that need a place to go...actually they are part of a group of 22 the same age, the others are 8 pullets plus 3 brahma chicks that I cannot tell sex on (I think 2 cockerels, 1 pullet). ANYWAYS, does anyone keep bachelor roosters with babies? My big roosters out in the big yard have no interested in "young" chickens and ignore them until they are laying age. I really need to get this big RIR boy out of the smaller pen, so I can move the pullets and an injured chicken into there.....if I put him with 11+ LARGE cockerels (Jersey Giant crosses, so they are about the same size as my 12 week old RIR Pullets) in the bigger pen, what do you think will happen? My RIR boy is bottom of the totem pole, other than chasing the girls for breeding stuff.
