Roosters fighting

I posted yesterday unsure whether my two roosters had been fighting, or whether Egglebert was injured in some other way and Tweedledum took advantage of his weakness.

Today when I was freshening Egglebert's water in his kennel he scooted out past me and Tweedledum immediately went after him.

So now I know.

Does anyone think this is a situation that can be managed somehow, or does one of the roosters need to go? I currently have 12 hens and plan to add chicks in the spring.

Thanks for your opinions and expertise.

Its what cocks do. You will probably have to keep them seperated. The least you can expect is the loss of an eye on one or both.

Thanks. I thought that was the case, but of course I hoped there might be another solution.
