    I've heard that some breeds are less likely to be aggressive, but it depends on the individual and the manner in which your raise them also. If keeping roos separate from hens is for selective breeding purposes then i would imagine that each roo should have his own pen - then the desired hens can be introduced to the roo of your choosing.
