    How long can my young cockerals be in a "Bachelor coop" before they start fighting? I am currently overrun with little roos. They currently outnumber the little pullets about 4 to 1. A few are starting to mount the girls, and I dont want the girls hurt. Would it be ok to put all the extra boys in the Bachelor Coop until they are sold? They are mostly Frizzled Cochins and a few silkies and OEGB and one gorgeous NH.... all bantams.

    I have 5 boys locked in the run right now. 4 need to go, 1 is just in time out. Anybody have any experience with having a 'roo coop' long term? They seem to be starting an alternative lifestyle [​IMG] as of now.

    If they cannot see the girls, you can toss them all in there without too much issue.
