    Last night we heard loud clucking and weird sounds coming from the rooster pen. We went out to check but could not find nothing unusual. This happen several times. These are three new roosters who are in there own pen. This morning I went out and there were white feathers in and around the pen. The only one with white feathers is our Frizzie. I think they might be fighting with each other. I am trying to slowly introduce them to the hens, but maybe I should go ahead and put the Frizzie in with the hens? He is the nicest rooster so far. I have no where else to put him. Any ideas?

    I wouldn't think they'd be fighting at night (unless you're running a light). I'd double check your pen to make sure something hasn't found a way in...

    Yep it was from fighting chickens. I guess my naked neck decided to pick on my Sizzle rooster. I found white feathers all over the pen, inside. So now they are separated and all is well.
