    my 2 roosters which have been raised together since just days old and were buddies up until a couple days ago. now they are fighting each other,rolling on the ground, pulling feathers out pecking combs its horrible. they are 6 months old and i have 4 hens. it wasnt planned to have 2 roosters but they ended up being 2 boys and 2 girls. they are both very good and sweet roosters. my husband thinks we need to get rid of one of them but i sure dont want to i love them both. but i also know they cant keep doing like this either. what do yall think i should do? what are my options???

    Thats what most roosters do especially around mating time, if you want to keep both of them , seperate them in different pens. I had to find homes for mine because they fought so bad that they drew blood.
