Newbie here! I have a mixed flock of 7 month old hens and roosters. I wish I had more hens but I lost several to predators and a couple of my hens turned out to be roosters. I'm planning to get more hens in the spring to balance things out. In the meantime my free range chickens have been in there 15x10 coop (with attached outdoor run) since Thanksgiving when it turned cold and snowy here in Minnesota. In the last two weeks I've noticed how rough most of my hens look. The roosters are constantly bothering them, and I'm feeling sorry them. I'm thinking about separating the hens and roosters, but I would rather leave them together since they have been together since birth. I have a four season porch where I brooded the chicks where I could move the hens until spring and give them a break from the roosters. Is this a good idea? Would the roosters be ok in a bachelor pad? They get along fine now. Would I be able to integrate the hens and roosters in the spring or would it be all out war? I'm planning to get more hens in the spring so my ratio is better. I could leave the hens in there and get saddles for the ones who look the most bedraggled. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
