    Hi All!

    Have 2 roos...one clearly dominant...great guardian...the other has 2 girlfriends, and they like to live in a tree at night. Its fine in the summer, but they'll be frozen chicken in the winter...I live in Colorado. I am trying to integrating in the coop with my other boy and his 8 hens. Tonight, I put the younger roo and his 2 girlfriends in the coop in a seperate cage...pls help...is this ok? will they all be ok together?

    I heard it is not ok to put 2 roos in the same coop...whats the deal. In case I don't check this, pls email me at [email protected] to let me know...otherwise you'll hear my sad, sad story

  2. We own 1 hen & 3 roosters right now... Lol. Not the ideal situation, but 1 is clearly dominant, and the other 2 are very passive. So long as they are used to one another, they will be fine, just watch them in case.
