We took on a young Rooster this year. I have a tenured rooster George which is 3 years old. He is so good with the Hens and us. I cannot stand the young Rooster!! It's like having a teenager. Before we got rid of the other Roosters and kept him he was on the bottom of the pecking order and rarely came out of the Rooster Coop. George tolerates him but still takes a swipe at him occasionally. This Rooster was not raised with the flock as a chick-ling. I would love to bypass the young roosters and get Tenured Roosters. The chasing of the hens and squaking after he finally catches them i super annoying! We have 20 hens.What do you do when you are trying to raise a back up rooster or replacement. I don't think we will ever replace George. He's a good boy to his girls.
