    Well you here conflicting info about keeping them together, I keep them together ... But mine were raised together. I don't know about birds who haven't been raised together. [​IMG]

    I have one OEGB roo, and he is the only roo I have that lets me pick him up. Bubba shares his coop with four other roosters. He does rule over all, but is not nasty

    That has been my expierience... Of course it also depends on the birds temperment and they will get into the occasional spat but nothing to serios.
