I've searched on here and found some similar topics, but not quite what I'm looking for... We have a group of year old chickens, 8 hens and 1 rooster. We have another group of chickens in the same coop/run that is 6 hens and 2 roosters that are just 3 months old. The year old rooster has decided to be mean the last few weeks. He's such a good leader for his ladies though. I'm wondering if we were to remove him from the group (aka, dinner), would one of the younger roosters step up and lead the older hens? Or are the 2 younger roosters like permanently attached to their own group? I would like to still have a rooster leading each group if possible. Thanks!
