    I'm getting two pair of show chickens soon, and I need to know is it okay to keep the hens together and seperate the roosters, or will the hens tear each other up, or will they all get along? I need to find out before I build my new coop.

    I'm not planning on breeding them this year, I just want to keep them from hurting each other. Should I always worry about this or just a few weeks before the shows?

    Thanks...

    You'll have four birds, total?

    Yes, A pair of each.

    I have others in a bigger pen, just not show birds.
