    I have 5 chickens all 3 months old living together. 1 Wyandotte hen, 1 BO hen, 1 SLW Roo, 1 Rosecomb bantam roo, and 1 silkie roo. Will I need to separate them eventually? The SLW is the dominate and hasn't shown agression toward the other two yet. The rosecomb JUST started crowing and the silkie still peeps like a baby.

    THanks!

    Yes. They'll eventually fight constantly over the hens. So sorry [​IMG] .

    yup eventually you will have to seperate them. Probably around 5 or 6 months of age for the roo's. Mine started fighting constantly over the girls, & we have 32 of them for only two roo's. Now they both stay in their own coops. [​IMG]
