    I have an aracauna rooster who isn't good for breeding he broke his middle toe, and he has a hard time with balance. he is more of a cherished family pet than anything. I bought an Isa Brown rooster to hopefully be able to hatch my own eggs, My question is Can their be any way to have them get along? I put them together when I first got the Isa Brown and they fought, does anyone have any good ideas?

    Let them see eachother for a couple days, but not be in contact. Them let them together, they will fight until one wins, then everything should be fine. However, if they dont stop fighting, you will have to keep them seperate. I hear ISA browns can be timid. I would try it, but stand near by with a broom if you need to break them up.
