Sorry so long.........My husband and I started with a day old straight run flock of 6, now 19 weeks old. Of the 6, we have 4 roos. We loved these birds so much that when they were about 6 weeks old, we bought 6 more day old chicks (all sexed as females). We got into this for hens. Long behold, we have confirmed 2 roos in that bunch and yesterday my jersey giant was "moaning" in the morning with the other 2 roos, so I'm thinking she is a he too. We have kept these flocks separate because the older birds have picked on smaller birds (2 separate housing), with the hopes that one day we could combine once the smaller birds were bigger (they are 13 weeks now). First we went into chickens for hens with maybe one roo. We have 6 roos (possibly 7 with new found Jersey "moaning"). I have one 19 week old roo who is very aggressive. He is my husbands best friend, but attacked me this week when I turned my back on him. This morning after I opened the coop he jumped out and chased me back to the house. I began carrying a broom with me after he attacked me this week, this morning I forgot the broom. Again, he loves my husband. But I feed and care for the birds mostly. We free range all the birds (we have 40 acres) and this mean roo, spends his entire day chasing the smalle birds around the property. I think we have way too many roos, agree? With so many roos, I don't think I'll ever be able to combine these flocks, agree? How in the world do I get big bad Henry to respect me as he does my husband (without the broom)? I've become afraid of him, not good. The other roos, terrified of him, which i think is the point with roos. Need some advise, reduce roos, remove my bad roo, how to combine?
