Nice to meet you Cindy, Welcome to Backyard chickens.   I feel I would be remiss if I didn't mention that a rooster can handle 10 hens. Less than that and the hens get overbred and physically damaged.  If you have  only one hen and the rooster - that is going to be a very bad situation for her.  Hens will lay just as many eggs without a rooster, and are  less stressed .   Rooster  is needed IF you need to sell 'fertile" eggs or want to hatch them.

 

Chickens are flock animals and your hen would be happier with another couple of hens.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
