Will roosters cohabitat relatively peacably, if they are kept separate from hens and pullets?
Some will. But as they get older, they may get more aggressive with each other. We have also found that in a group of hens, they may start competing with each other. This can result in beat up, featherless girls.
I'd say most will. But they need to be out of sight of the hens. If they can see them they will fight over them.
