    My roosters (yes I know I shouldn't have 10) keep picking on the lowest on the pole. They have killed 3 birds in the last 3 months, 1 hen (crippled) and 2 boys. Should i establish another coop or roosting spot? My coop has good roosting places and nesting boxes but is very open. The boys like to attack each other just before bedtime. I was hoping the lack of snow and room outside to free range would change their pent up aggression. Any suggestions?

    How many chickens do you have?

    It sounds like to need to rehome some.
