In a nutshell, we ordered 38 birds in August - including two males. The order was 'messed up' in that I did not count 8 Americaunas, so I contacted Ideal and they sent me one male and one female Amer., plus 8 male barreds for warmth. Needless to say, both the Americaunas were male . So, now I have 3 (only wanted 2) Americauna roos, Hawk, Imhotep (was Ansk Su Namun) and Ramses PLUS 8 Barred Rocks, that are ganging up on our hens. We are wanting to separate them into their own area, and I am wanting to know if they will fight with no hens around? Yes, Yes, I know, I could cull them, but as a faire goer, I can sell the feathers (so they earn their keep) and my dear Hubby cannot envision, as he puts it, 'murder' them. I've been trying, but with no success either. They are here through no fault of their own, and, well, I would rather set them loose in the fields for bug control where they would also be useful before I cull them. Any thoughts? And no, they are not aggressive towards us, only wanting to get the girls. Thanks for any suggestions on this!
