Recently, I lost my rooster and 3 of my older hens, leaving me with 16 hens ranging in age from 4 years to 4 months. Since the rooster left, the girls have been wandering, lost without their leader. I bought a year old tame Rhode Island Red rooster for them, and the younger girls have accepted him, but not the older ones. I have a friend who has a 4.5 month old Silver Laced Wyandotte (bantam) that she cannot keep because of where she lives. I am tempted to take him, but have never had two roos, and have never wanted to. My set up is this: two separate coops in the same barn (converted barn stalls), they share a 50'x30' covered run and have access to 3 acres to free-range when I think it is safe from the hawks. They have very much remained two separate flocks, the younger roosting in one coop and the older in their usual coop. They are together during the day in the run but don't mingle too much, and when they range, they separate for the most part. I'm wondering if adding another roo to the mix would just add confusion or if it is possible. I've had chickens for 4 years now, and I understand that roos can fight, but I may have enough girls to go around. Also, the little guy may be able to be tamed a bit, and he may be submissive to the RIR since he is so large. Thoughts?
