How many roos are in your flock? How are they housed if you have them separated? Danielle, my alpha out of a flock of 11, has forced Justine, another roo away from the flock. Danielle tolerates the lower three roos, Louise (bantam), Suzanne (BA) and Iris (bantam), but chases Justine away for some reason. Should I pull Danielle or Justine out? Does he need a partner to live with? And when are chickens sexually mature or considered full grown-a year? I want to do right by these guys and want to keep everyone safe, but I don't want them to be lonely, kwim? Is it possible to have couples live in peace?
