I have 3 cocks & 3 hens, some of which are nesting. One of the cocks is constantly chasing my favourite cock until he is worn out and just gives in. He then gets his neck pecked, although there is no obvious injury.

If I introduce another hen, might this help?

Be better off reducing males. Extra birds are highly unlikely to improve harmony if there is already a problem with aggression.
