    I got 3 roosters and one hen when I purchesed them due to them being sexed wrong.

    I have 2 roosters seperated and one rooster is in with the hen.

    I have aquired 2 more hens a bit younger and tried to put them in with the other hen and rooster but he was being a jerk and pecking the heck out of them so I took them out and built a small pen right next to the rooster and hen. Trying to get the rooster to aclimate him self with them.

    I tried to put one in last night and he was still being a jerk.
    I am not looking to breed right now so can I take him and put him back with the other 2 roosters and leave the hens by them selves?
