I have two Roosters in a 35x35 pen, Jubi and Muttly. Muttly is almost 6 months old, Jubi is 7 months. Muttly has been the dominant one up until recently, but there has been some posturing and yesterday I went out to discover them in the middle of a fight, with Jubi kicking the crap out of Muttly. I separated them for now, Muttly needs a few days to heal up and in the meantime I am going to look for a few more hens to add to their pen, add some more hiding spots, and see if I can reintroduce them. If not I can set up another pen, Muttly isn't going anywhere for sure, and I'd rather not get rid of Jubi either. I only have 4 hens in with them though, I had 13 pullets that were supposed to be going in there also and predators got all of them, so I realize I will need some more. My real question though is Jubi's behavior towards the hens. There has been a fair amount of breeding going on the last few months, which as the hens started to molt and stop laying has dropped off. But I've been seeing Jubi exhibit some of the same behaviors towards the hens that he and Muttly were towards each other prior to this fight. Dancing sideways in front of them, blocking their way, dropping his wings, etc. Is he just trying to impress on them that he's now the dominant rooster in the flock, or is this a precursor to him attacking one of them? The male/male issue I don't have a problem with, it would be nice if they got along but ... But if he starts going after the girls he will get a fast trip into my freezer. Also, I have a number of chicks that are about 2 weeks old right now. If I keep the boys separated for a few months while these chicks grow up, what are the chances of me being able to reintroduce them once there are plenty of girls? Or is it a case of once separated they aren't going to get along in the future?
