I have 8 hens and 2 "SURPRISE" roosters. I had intended on all hens, but the guys have grown on me. In any case, they definitely have their "favorites", if you get my drift and those poor hens are having major damage being done to their back feathers. I live in a very cold climate and I need to let those hens recover and grow their feathers back. I have an area in my coop where I can put about 4 birds that will be away from the others. They will still be in the same area, there is just chicken wire and a door between them. What would be the best thing to do...put the roos in there or will they fight, or put the hens who need a break in there and for how long. Also, is the lack of feathers going to cause a problem for them in the cold?
