    You need to get rid of one of those roosters! Fast! They're just gonna keep fighting until you remove one of them!
    We've dealt with this before.

    here is one thing you can try. now this worked for me with my pullet pecking my younger chicks but roosters are far more agressive but you can try this if you don't see improvement likely you should remove the agressive rooster but there is a purple lotion called rooster booster peck no more, put it all over the rooster that's being pecked on it won't hurt him but it smells and tastes so bad the other rooster should leave him alone. my pullet pecked once with that stuff on my chicks and that was all it took it was so nasty to her she stopped pecking the chicks entirely! i don't even have to use it any more. she has stopped completely. you can give this a try. it is purple to cover blood and it also treats wounds with tea tree oil in it. if he still fights him with that stuff on there is probly no stopping him! this stuff is so nasty to tthe other birds they want to stay away from it. its only about 6 dollars at the feed store or online. it worked like a charm for me and worked first time but I'm not sure how agressive your rooster is but you give it a try. if he still fights him, get rid of the agressive rooster. but do see if it helps. its made to stop a bird from pecking his wounds but it works Great to stop others from pecking also. its a thick purple lotion.when i put it on my chicks my pullet pecked um once and that was it! it was so nasty she completely stopped pecking them all together! worked the first time, first day i tried it.much better than those no pecking sprays! this stuff smells so strong they hate it. see if it helps you out. if not,then that rooster will never stop and you should consider getting rid of him. but give it a try first and see if it helps. worked like a miricle for me but I'm not dealing with a rooster. but see if it helps you out. best of luck!
