We will be getting our first chickens this spring and have a question that has been bugging me. We are getting chickens for the eggs they produce.
We will be getting day olds from the local co-op and I do not believe them to be sexed so we will more than likely end up with roosters.
What do I do with the roosters? We would like to keep one but we're only getting 15 chickens, too many roosters is a problem, no?
Will I need to separate them from the hens? Wouldn't they fertilize the eggs which would negate my purpose of having chickens? I've been through the past 35 pages of topics with no luck.
