cockerels group #4 .split them into 2 groups .
larger cockerel left them in they pens ,and the small one moved to they new coop . older coop { pullets are moved from there } .a lot space .
I added to them 4 cockerels from free ranging hens pen . same age and size . plus Khabib Splash copper rooster to keep them under control .
all good ,no fighting with this guy ,all peaceful and happy .Khabib got a easy job looking after those guys .Golden boy can no say a same thing ,his boy are restless .

each cockerels group is named after the dominant older rooster .
this pen is Khabib Pen .
