    i need to bring my other rooster back home. wondering if one will kill the other. one is 7 months old the other is 2 years old that i need to bring back . they were introduced earlier this summer and my oldest roo was going after the young one. now that the young roo is getting bigger they might get along.

    They might get along, but in reality they are far more likely to have a knockdown dragout fight.

    I put them in a crate for a few days before including them into the flock. I currently have 3 roosters that free range with the hens and sleep in the coop at night with the hens. I have 3 in pens cause they dont get along with 1 of the free roosters. If I see a fight I pick them up right away before it goes to far and put the one chasing up, the one running I let roam free. I have 0 tolerance for aggression.
