    I have two roosters & have made them separate coops & yards each with their own hens because they were fighting but now they can still see each other thru the fence & fight with the fence between them (still getting bloody). I am thinking if I can put something on the fence where they can't see each other they won't fight but what? Please post pictures of your separate runs any ideas would be great.

    Dont use a fence. Just put a piece of wood or stack of bricks in between them. Cut off all sight of each other.

    I already have a fence up & if I put wood on it it will be to heavy. If any one wants this rooster he is free don't really need him just ended up with him.

    You could try corrugated roofing material - it comes in all types and colors. You might need to cut it to the side you want/need.
