    I have 2 banty roosters that live outside my coop. I had to put them out before my head rooster killed them. Often in the evenings I let my flock out to range until sunset. In my coop I have 2 roosters. One is my head roo and another is an aracauna rooster i have raised. The aracauna is approximately 5 months old. Each time I let them out, the 2 bantys chase the aracauna and attempt to mate him. The aracauna is scared to death of the other two. Is this normal?

    Okay, you just made me laugh out loud, and a cube mate at work (that's about 100' away) just e-mailed me, "What's so funny?" HA!
