I have two "flocks" of chickens, I split off a flock of 22 chickens from the main bunch. My coop can only handle 22 over winter. The rest will be going "away" I have not decided who will be "making the trip" yet, to the brand new freezer. I have a smaller rooster in the split off flock that crows and seems to be sociable to the rest of the flock. He is an EE and not very meaty. I would like a meat type rooster, so I do not have to buy chicks next year. My problem is "brutus" the overly large red production rooster I like could be a tyrant. No other rooster dares to crow around him. Last night I accidentally chased a rooster from the smaller flock into Brutus's coop. It was a Dixie rainbow nearly as large a Brutus. Brutus put the run on him and chased him of the coop almost 80 yards away. Then Brutus to the coop and I thought he was mating with a larger Dixie rainbow hen. I thought this weird because I have no chickens laying eggs yet. When he let the poor bird up, I saw it was a rooster. Is Brutus just mean? Is this normal? Should Brutus go away?
