    I have 2 roos in a pen together. They are silkies and get along well. One is a proven breeder, the other a virgin. In another pen I have 2 brown standard leghorn/silkie cockerels about 5 weeks old. Then I have what I think are a couple of more standard brown leghorn cockerels in with my 12 week old pullets. They are about 10 weeks old. I also have 1 roo thats about 2 weeks old and maybe another roo that is a few days old. (mama silkie has been busy setting the leghorn babies all summer).

    Can I put all these roos together in a separate coop for the winter? It would be so much easier than having a bunch of separate cages. They can all see each other now and I don't have any fighting now.
