    Should we separate the hen from the roos sence we aren't breeding yet? There is some age difference, the older roo likes to bully the smaller roos and pullets. [​IMG] Thanks John

    You could house them separately all roosters until you are ready to breed. Or thin out the number of roosters and see if that helps.
