Hen ratio

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Want to get some ringnecks. Would a 10ftx20ft pen be sufficient for 4 hens and 2 roos? Is this ratio ok?
1 gold laced cochin roo, 1 Heritage bronze turkey, 4 New Hampshire reds, 2 barred rocks, 3 buff orphingtons, 1 partridge rock, 2 jersey giants, 2 red stars, 3 cuckoo marans, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 White Marans, 3 White Leghorns, 2 Ameraucanas, 2 rambunctious kittens, a bunny, a spoiled rotten lab mix, 1 wife, 1 daughter, and a bun in the oven.   ~~~Proverbs 3:5-6

Good for 4 hens and 1 rooster.If you have 2 roosters they will fight until death.

I recommend at least 4 hens in that amount of space.! male can breed up to 10 hens,and the more hens the better.
