I'm not quite sure where to begin...but I'll give it a go. My flock of 60 currently has 3 roosters - An almost 3 year old Lavender Orpington, (Dumbledore) who is the best rooster I've ever had; gentle with the ladies, amiable toward humans, but still willing to fight down dogs for his flock. Currently alpha male. A 5 month old LO/BR cross (Cedric) who has just recently started to mature. He was an obvious rooster at 4 weeks, had an attitude at 6, and I was pretty sure he'd be soup before he was grown. But, he has really stepped up to the plate and is taking after his father. These two have coexsisted since Cedric was born (Broody raised in the flock). Like I said, Cedric is just starting to mature, and he's still young, so there hasn't been a whole lot of conflict. He crowed for the first time a couple days ago, tried (miserably) to mount a hen, and is starting to (attempt) to move up the pecking order. He has always been the lowest, but he was in a squabble with one of the hens last night and wouldn't back down. I think he ended up winning. After that, Dumbledore walked up to him and gave him a solid peck that made him run away squawking, so I think they are established. My third rooster is an approximately one year old Iowa Blue (Malfoy) who is the prettiest thing. Not the best with the hens. Respectful toward humans. He is not yet integrated with the rest of the flock, as I got him and six other Iowa blues from a friend. They are currently in a pen right next to the others, and have been for 4 weeks. Dumbldore and Malfoy got into a fight through the wire roughly 30 seconds after he arrived. However, I haven't seen them fight for a couple weeks. (Dumbledore expects the lower roosters to respect him but is definitely very merciful.) All that to say....how is the best way to put them together? I'm almost too hesitant to even try. Malfoy is just too excitable and high strung, in my opinion. He tries to get to the ladies through the wire, and constantly is making warning sounds against Dumbledore and Cedric. (It's been interesting, Cedric really started to blossom right when Malfoy came...I think Cedric really dislikes him and took him as a challenge to manhood.) I'm worried that Malfoy will try and attack Dumbledore and won't back down. Dumbledore is almost twice his size (body wise and spur wise) but is pretty clumsy. I'm not sure how Cedric will fit into it. Especially with being cooped up because of the cold and snow, everyone is grumpy. They have 400+ square feet of coop, with different "rooms" to get away from each other. (They don't use the run and refuse to go outside since it's winter.) I don't want to get rid of Malfoy just because he is a beautiful specimen and I'd love to breed some Iowa Blues. I'm throwing around the idea of a bachelor pad, but I don't see him being very happy with that.
