    I hatched some of my own eggs and now have too many roosters, have had small issues but no real problem until now. One rooster has gotten into serious cock fights, is there any way it will stop or is it just going to get worse. thanks[​IMG]

    It may come down to a peking order and stop but not likely. Roosters just in general dont really care for other roosters. I have pens with 2-3 roos and they got it worked out but theres also ample hens for all of them. An over abundance of roos is going to be a scrap most days.
