My young 8 month old rooster Spike,has beat up the former leader of the pack,old Ninja. If I hadn't been around,the old timer probably wouldn't still be with us. I heard my dog fussing out in the front yard,went to investigate,and spike had just about killed Ninja. Ninja is so old that it is no wonder. He was just laying on the ground, completly exhausted,and Spike was just wailing on him. Ninja has been king around here since I got my chickens,and has been pretty rough on Rocky my other young rooster,and especially tough on Spike since Spike was a little fella,but the other two always just got out of Ninja's way,and no fighting. I caught Ninja,and isolated him for now. Don't quite know what to do with the old guy now. Think I will fence off a big run for him and throw in a couple of hens,and just let him live out his days.
