Bully chick maybe a rooster? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

If you do keep him  - a rooster can handle 10 hens  -  less than that and they can get overbred and physically damaged.  Do you have than many hens  or want to get more?  If you don't intend to hatch or sell fertile eggs,  there really isn't any reason to keep a roo.

Good to know! @drumstick diva I do not have more than 10, but eventually we will be getting more. I have a home for him just incase I do decide I don't want him. I did want to incubate eggs, but the little research I have done has shown a great percent of them being boys and I don't have the heart to kill them simply bc of their sex and I don't want to re home all those males. Chances are I am going to re home this big guy, but thanks for everyone's help!
