The rooster seem to get very aggressive this time of year (spring) and really start chasing each other. Is there anything that can be done to prevent it?

1) Provide lots of hens to keep them busy. 2) Place hoods on them 3) give lots of space

Has anyone ever tried putting the birds inside so the amount of light can be controlled? Would that calm the bird down? Would that cause problems with the tailfeathers? How long could you hold adult roosters that way? Lost of questions...hope someone can help.

Light has an affect. Not sure how drastic of an affect. Same with temperature.

Adding to the original list of alternative ideas... Give them something else to do. I've opened up bails of soybean stubble or swtich grass or corn stubble to give them something to pick through as an alternative.

Whatever you do, do not let the roosters outnumber the hens. My stock is 50/50 right now and I'm losing a couple of the birds each day before I catch in each pen that doesn't have vast amounts of space (I have about 500 left at the moment). I've seen a single hen get thrown in a pen with a couple hundred roosters. She didn't have a chance. Dead within minutes.

It sounds like holding rooster after 3/31 is a loosing proposition no matter what you do. You can try and limit the damage, but the bottom line is, there will still be damage.
