    hello,ive got 2 beautiful duccle roos.they are way to rough with my hens,and ive had to to put 2 down.looked like possible spinal injury.i hate to re-home because im very attached and you never can be sure they are being cared for.so my question is this,can i build them a seperate little coop and run with no hens just the two living together? will they fight? can i put them with the flock and just put up a fence to seperate? i would greatly appreciate any suggestions..
    thanks

    Lots of people have bachelor pens. I don't keep extra roos so haven't done it myself, but from what I've read it usually works out pretty well. Seems like they do better (not as much fighting) if you can put the pen away from where your hens are.

    I have heard if you make the bachelor pad to where they cant see the hens they are ok.....don't know because mine are all together for now they are only 13 weeks....[​IMG]
