I have two flocks of chickens three older pullets and one surprise roo. The pullets of that group are mostly fine with my three 6-7 week old chicks. Whenever the first group gets too close to the young group (or vise versa) the roo chases the little ones away. We want to cull the roo when he becomes his most tasty, but I don't know what to do with him in the meantime. So far I run around and catch him and coop him back up for the day after giving him a chance in the morning. Later in the day I let him out again and he mostly ignores the little ones then. The three young chicks are in a temporary coop outside (on the patio YUCK!) and I would like to put them in the main coop SOON. I just don't trust the roo alone with them. I'm just not sure what to do with him. Perhaps I should take him from the coop at night and add the little ones...and keep the roo in a kennel? Shoot, I wish I could ring his neck now, the little bugger!
