I've received a lot of good advice and information on here, so thank you for that!! I bring to you today a more out of the box question in planning for the future.
I have heard about people keeping groupss of only roosters and it working out. I believe they were referred to as "bachelor coops". Does anyone have experience with doing this?
I have 19 chicks and 4 (at least) are going to be roosters for sure. I'd like to keep one with my hens, but don't want the other 3 going to the pot. This sounded almost too out there to be true, but gave me a bit of hope. We have pasture animals with plenty of free range space the roosters could enjoy and can easily set up another coop for them. From my understanding, as long as hens aren't with them, there shouldn't be excessive aggression and they supposedly cohabit fine together.
Does anyone have more information on this topic? I really have found much on it.
Thank you all!
