I have a full grown rooster arriving tonight to my flock of 15 hens...5 of the hens are still babies, in their "teens", not full grown yet. The other 10 are all egg laying.
My MIL is ultimately going to take the rooster but I thought he could pay my girls a "social visit" first. 😉 My hens free range during the day. Would it be best to just let him loose with them that way or should he stay in his own small coop first? Or should I put him in at night with the girls and let him do his thing? I would love to get some chicks out of him before sending him on his way but I don't know how long of a process that is..how long until he starts "mingling" with the ladies? Also, will he be aggressive to the babies?
Anyone know the breed?
