My two bantam Cochin roos have been best buddies for about 5 months now. This morning when I let them out, they when after each other. I watched for a litle while because at first I thought they were playing or it would pass, but it didn't so I threw a plastic bowl in their direction and it startled them enough to make them stop. I walked over & the one roo was all puffed up & didn't move away, so I scooped him up right away. He's fine, had a couple good pecks so his comb ws bleeding a bit. I carried him around for a while as a reprimand for trying to stand up to me, then put him back out. They seemed to go about their business as usual after that. One peck was very close to his eye which worries me. Is this normal? I loved the fact that they got along so well. Sometimes the girls split up out free ranging and it was nice to have the 2 boys to keep an eye on them. So, advice please? Is it likely to be a phase? They are both about 6 months old and have been together for most of that time. There is one I was thinking about breeding and one I definitely wasn't so maybe it's time to make the change to a one roo flock? I just don't want things to get worse, and I certainly don't want them to turn that agressive behavior on me.
