I hopefully have a solution for 1 too many roosters and an over bloated layer flock! I absorbed some hens last year when my friend Margo moved to Canada and at the same time hatched out a Marans rooster that is just not fitting in with the rest of the flock. I also changed jobs and am no longer working with the lady who has been buying all of my excess eggs. I can get some to her occasionally but not on the regular basis that I was able to do before. The new hens are mixed breed and hatchery stock, they are perfectly good hens, Good layers. I saved them from being picked off by a bobcat. They did cause some upset in the pecking order and I find that we don't have a lot of attachment to them as we didn't raise them from chicks.
I found a guy who is looking for a flock of chickens for his newly built chicken coop on some acreage. I have offered him 5 hens and my extra rooster. He thinks I am an angel. I feel like I am an enabler. I just know that I am feeding a whole bunch of chickens and I really want to be able to focus on my Cream Legbars.
