I was worried about the size. He is total cuteness though. Of the 12, five have tail feathers and body length wing feathers. The others are a bit larger in size and have no interest in feathering out. I was suspicious that I ended up with 5 hens and 7 roos!...oh my... No worries though. My goal/dream/hope was to have 4 hens and to have a rooster and a spare.
Thank you for helping.
If someone has time, one more question. Given the Orp size, how many could I comfortably house in a 4 x 8 coop?
With 7 cockerels that means you should have ample opportunity to choose 1-2, maybe even 3 really good breeders!
