Hello,my name is Bryce im from south central oklahoma, i just joined BYC although i have used this forum as a resource for information for quite a while, any question ive had ive been able to get the answer from this forum!!

I have a couple questions, how many roosters should i have for a flock of about 35? And does anyone know what breed of rooster this is? my father inlaw gave him to me and he doesnt know what breed he is either.

:welcome  Given enough space (it appears that your birds are free range) two or three and perhaps even more roosters could coexist with your hens.  Introducing adult roosters to such a flock would be difficult.  I believe that your rooster is a cross of some sort.

If you don't intend to sell or hatch fertile eggs,  you don't really need a rooster.  They are not  the greatest protection for your flock,  if they stand up to a predator, they won't last long.

 

Your one rooster would be fine - because he couldn't possibly OVER breed that many hens.    You can post a closeup photo of him at "what breed or gender is this," to find out exactly what he is.
