We have 12 acres so we are quite isolated from other houses the only thing is my current flock free range every day so the boys might get a glimpse of them, I might have to keep them in completely different fieldsHow much land do you have? If you have some acres, you could easily do that.
Not possible on a 1/8 acre suburban lot.
What are the rules and regs in your area regarding roosters and crowing?
How many girls do you have?Hi everyone I have recently hatched 3 chicks they’re now 10 weeks old and I’ve ended up with 3 roosters! I can’t keep them all with my all girls flock so do you think I could make them they’re own pen? Or will I have to find them homes? Thank you
It's really going to depend on the individual birds. I've kept cockerel pens within the free range hens area and they've been fine. Too busy talking to the hens along the fence line to squabble I guess. I also had a cockerel group well out of sight of them that could't get along until certain members were thinned out.Make sure you have the room.
You need them out of sight of the girls.
I accidentally made myself a two cockerel bachelor group a few years ago.
They took one glance at a hen and started a full blown battle there and then.
It can work, if you have the space.
