    My dominant hens, #1 and #2 are tearing up the backs of the BR. Everyone has plenty of room, treats and free range time. I am beginning to wonder if a nice roo might help with the pecking order. Everyone lays regularly, and I know they are all hens. If I can't fix this #1 and #2 might go into the soup pot!

    Yes roos will help. They will pay more attention to the roos than to each other.
