I am now going to start getting into some breeding and started with a few breeds late last year. I have had roosters fighting. I have had roosters keeping ducks that are outside in the same area with them keeping the ducks away from food. I guess I need some flock management tips for the best way to deal with roosters. My flock is mainly for eggs and meat. Is it best to keep separate areas for ducks and chickens? Is it best to keep just a certain number of roosters per hens? Are there certain breeds of roosters that are more known for fighting? The roosters that I had fighting was a RIR vrs. a Barred Rock. The Barred Rock lost. I removed him from the coop for a few days to heal and when I put him back there they were all fine. A friend of mine had trouble with her Del roosters.
