    I am new. I just got 9 hens and 2 roosters. My big guy is SO sweet and he's getting beat up by the bantam rooster. I was crushed when I saw this today.

    Can I put the nasty little rooster in a small wire kennel, inside the coop as a time out?

    What do I put on my poor big roosters back?
    How do I fix this? I am SO mad at the little one!

    You have too many roosters. Pick one, or rotate them out. When you have 2 roosters they will often fight, especially the more feisty bantams.
