Hi guys, I visited a lady who raises chickens and of course we were eager to talk about our favorite topic! I told her how my 3 year-old Australorp rooster is a bit of a jerk. He's excellent with his ladies (even the silkie!) but he likes to pick fights with me and my husband. We've removed his spurs so he doesn't really hurt us. Some days he doesn't bother us at all and others it's just obvious he's looking for a fight. She said that she had that problem with all of her roosters until she started keeping two. I certainly have enough hens (31 and counting), to keep two boys happy, but don't want to get another boy just because of one person's success. She tells me that the roosters do their job with the ladies and also keep each other busy and don't bother people at all anymore. They free-range all day on several acres and then she closes their coop behind them when they go in at night. She lets them out first thing in the morning. What do you guys think? Is it possible another rooster might help my current rooster's temperament? Do you think two boys can get along if they're cooped up for a few hours each morning (until I get outside to let them out. Sometimes this is as late as 10am)? My current coop is about 8x12.
