I have 6 Columbian Cochins. A mature Rooster and a 6 month old that is still somewhat attached to the hen but every day its obvious the mature rooster is indicating theres trouble ahead. There are 4 hens, 2 laying and one with a young one in tow that was hatched the same time the young rooster hatched. How much conflict can I anticipate between the 2 roosters. these birds all range and when I was letting them out this morning there was some quarreling with the big guy and the youngster. Well not much of a quarrel more like hey Im going kick your young butt and I got between them. Once they were out of the coop he chase the young a little then lightened up. Even the hens are picking on the youngster around the scratch pans and he has been maintaining his distance. Is there a chance this will all pass or is blood inevitable if I dont take steps and what might my options be? The youngster is really a well marked bird probably the best of the 6 and I hate to think I may have to take steps of getting rid of him. If it comes to that is there anyone who would be interested?
