Then they grow up
The solution this year (apart from deciding not to breed so many next summer) was to sort out the roosters, put them all together in the shadehouse. Strangely enough, there has been no fighting since we put them in together without any hens around. Go figure!
They are doing a good job in the meantime of clearing out the veggie garden, before it is rotary-hoed and made ready for winter crop of vegetables.
I am planning on concentrating on pekin breeding too, so next seasons crop of chicks will be pure bred pekin bantams, and hopefully more saleable.
cheers for now
