@Dani4Hedgies thanks a mill!! Would love to meet you if you ever do come this way!
@Trish44 thanks for the additional input on the Campines!! That's what I love about this thread. Everyone puts in their personal experiences to help everyone else out!!!! I'm looking at the Isabell leghorns but I'm not totally settled on that either yet.
I had campines as well and they were super hyper but I sold them before they were laying age so I have no idea how they were as adults. They acted like typical bantams to me. Almost very bantam bird I've had has been pretty high strung except for D'uccle's.
Hi all, checking in from southeast Kansas. Just spent the better part of 2 hours catching up on this thread from all that I missed over the winter. Sick for the last 4 months.
Husband finished a chicken tractor he made from an old trampoline frame and we moved what we thought were all of our new pullets in there along with one young but beautiful RIR roo named Elvis. Turns out 2 are also roos, have to come out.
Still recuperating but planning a small coop for one BR roo we have. How many hens should he have to be happy. I'm new at this. Only raised chickens when I was young for meat.
Sorry to hear you've been sick. The average for a rooster if you want fertility is one roo for each 10 hens. If you just want a flock protector you can have up to 30 hens per roo easily.
