can I get some opinions, and say it how it is, no sugar coating
I need to get my rooster to hen ratio under control so we are processing a few this afternoon and every weekend for awhile..
I have 2 young OE only one is worthy of keeping the other is mean,,, ( sorry Blarney) but I also have plenty of EE roosters that I am fond of,,,should I go down to 1 of each.
I have 2 maran hens and 1 maran rooster, he is not mean to people but he does not tolerate other roosters to well and he is a little rough on the hens, I am thinking to shish kabob him, I do not breed maran'a these eggs came as a swap hatch...
I have 2 different dominique rooster's , one does not have the standard comb, he has more of a single comb like a barred rock, thinking he should go..
I also have 3 white bresse roosters, one has an off color leg kind of a yellowish color, they are suppose to be blue, and the other 2 are blue,, should I get rid of the misfit....
maybe I should just remove from the pen those that I know I will keep and let hubby decide, since his way of deciding is whoever he can catch first
mean roosters are easy to make the decision, but the nice boys are hard to decide, maybe that is why they are so gorgeous, it is a survival technique
forgot to add, I also like my silkie rooster, I have 3 of them, I do not breed for silkie's, but I like the crosses I get from them,,,think of a big white rooster that has the body size and roundness of an orpington but the skin and feathers of the silkie, this is a typical combo that I get there... think maybe it is time for them to go though, I do not need any more crosses and they are about 3 years old
