    A few weeks ago I added an adult pair (hen/roo) of Seramas to our family. I have a RIR hen, a Mille Fluer roo, and one of theyr chicks. THey free range during the day. The other day I finaly let the newbies out to range. My mille fluer is now hanging out with the Seramas, like they are all old friends. Will they stay friendly or start fighting later on?

    Your roosters may fight over the hens later on. You should probably add more hens if you want to keep more than one rooster.

    chrissym, flock management is a ongoing process that seems to be going well for you now. Keeping watch over what is going on will remain to be the key for your success. Good Luck!

    I agree, just keep an eye on them. I have had two roos co habit for about a year with a hen, and she was fine... she was also twice their size.[​IMG]
