    If this has been addressed somewhere else, forgive me. I couldnt find it in a brief search, and Im impatient [​IMG] Can you keep more than one roo together in a pen, or do they all have to be kept separate from one another?

    If there are no hens around to compete for they get along fine, if there is women around = trouble they will compete....

    I keep 1-2 roos per pen, depending on how many hens I have in the pen. Two roos can work out fine if they are raised together. Sometimes introducing a new roo to an already established pen doesn't work out so well. It is typically a try it and see kind of deal in those cases. Some roos will tolerate a newbie and others won't.
