We have two pullets and two cockerels that are 2 months old and have been raised together. Recently we have acquired 3 hens who are part of a flock and 3 more 5 month old pullets who are part of a flock. (so three little groups) My dominant cockerel protects his girls from the older pullets and is obviously their "big brother" right now. We are looking to rehome the cockerels and are concerned about leaving the babies without a protector. They are not the smartest kids in the class and I worry about them getting really bullied. When the little girls are separated from the cockerels they totally freak out. I guess we could wait until they get a little older but the dominant cockerel is already trying his hardest to mate with the 5 month old pullets and he is getting really crabby and cocky already. Any suggestions?
