I'm wondering if I can keep multiple rooster by themselves with no ladies without any issues. Looking to fatten up my roos for the freezer.

I have 15 together with no problems, but if you add a new roo be ready for the poor thing to get hit on for a while till they get use to him, also in the late evening the roos somtimes try to breed each other, but mine fair out ok.

i keep oeg's for show birds so i always have lots of roosters, i keep them together all the time with no problem, quite often i'll have hen's with them too and still no fighting.

Yep, I've done it too and they get along great once the pecking order is established. The key is having no hens to fight over.

I figured if no hens no issues. I have three in the big pen now and they seem to get along pretty well until one of the younger ones tries to mount one of the hens.
