We have 5 hens and 2 drakes. We had 5 drakes and slowly worked our way down to 2 that seemed to get along and treat the hens nicely. They've been the only two drakes for a month now. This week they started beating each other up, trying to mount a hen at the same time, and this morning was the final straw. One of the drakes bit a hen in the face (way too close to her eye for me) while the other one was mating. Then one of the drakes spent 1/2 hour chasing the other drake around the yard trying to bite him and mount him. Can they work this out or is this a sign that I only can have one of them? I'm willing to live with one drake if it will keep the peace in my flock.
