    You know how hens can "become a roo"? I have two [​IMG] one that crows and "breeds" and the other just "breeds".
    I have two 2 month old roos that are trying to take their place as roo, but well the hennyroos are too big for them to stand up to [​IMG]
    Would it help if I took my hennyroos away for a while and let my little guys take their place in the flock? I'm a little afraid that they wouldn't be accepted when I reintroduce them.

    I would just leave them be. In time, the cockerels will mature and take their place. In the mean time - the hens are teaching them manners.
