have questions about my young cockerals fighting. if this isn't the correct board, please direct me. today, i went out to check the coop, food, dishes. i had two young cocks going at it pretty good. one, a white orp. the other one, was sold to me as a delaware egg - but he is COMPLETLY white, not a spec of black anywhere. i hatched out all of the birds in this pen from bought eggs. they are about 8 weeks old. well the 'del' was beating the orp, to the point of bloodied combs. they are in a pen with some 'mixed' hens - 12 weeks old, and 'dels' from the same clutch. a total of 13 birds in a pen 8 x 10. plenty of roosting space, food and water. so my questions: should i separate cockerals/pullets earlier then 8 weeks. -do i need more space -do i just have a rogue cockeral that needs to be put in a pot?? thanks for your help.
