    This is just their nature. One will try to be the dominant roo and this is how they show it. If they aren't drawing blood you can just let them do their thing. I've seen roos kick other roos off hens many times and have yet to see any blood. Separation is the only solution if you do start seeing blood.

    Quote:Get rid of two roosters if you can, or separate them. How many hens do you have in with three roosters?

    Separate or get rid of the excess roosters. This is a great scenario for injured hens.
