I have 10 hens all hatched on the same day, Aug 3rd, so we are approaching 8 weeks. I want a rooster and none of the 16 chicks I have are showing signs of being roo-ish. The local NPIP hatchery has a 12 week old Welsummer rooster. I'm wondering how he would do being introduced to a coop full of 8 week pullets. And as far as roosters go, how does the Welsummer rank?
These are the chicks I have, if it means anything:
1 Salmon Faverolles
1 Barred Rock
3 Polish top hats of various breeds
2 Speckled Sussex
coop is 108 sq ft and they free range daily
