and good morning fellow BYCers I have in my adult pen at present 2 roosters and 7 hens (bad ratio I know), in my grow up pen for the juviniles I have at least 25 pullets that will be at point of lay the end of June, so I am holding off combining the 2 flocks until the pullets are at the point of lay and ready for the 2 roosters who constantly want to mate. Here's my problem & questions....... The 2 grown roosters in question are NHR & BA or BJ, the NHR is clearly the alfa rooster and he isn't too nice to my black rooster, heck he isn't very nice to me either so I have to carry a stick in the pen with me, but he is very watchful of the 7 hens in the pen with them. Now here's the questions..... When I go to intergrate the 25 pullets will leaving them all together be ok? Will the NHR become nicer to my black rooster? Or even me? Or to be fair to the black rooster should I seperate the roosters and divide the pullets evenly between them? I only ask because I want my birds to live in harmony and my poor Blackie is being picked on.
