So we bought a house on 5 acres and wanted to try the chicken thing. So we now have 15 chickens that we purchased from the feed store. We knew they would most likely be hens, but were hoping that we would get one rooster. And because where we live we're allowed to have them, of course they all turned out to be hens.
So our girls are 8 to 9 weeks now and we have moved them into a large indoor coop in the yard while we build the chicken yard around the coop. Basically I want to know if the girls are too young to add a rooster since we eventually want him for protection. and if we can add a rooster do we need to add one of the same age? Also with a flock of 15 girls do we need to add more than one rooster?
Like I said we were hoping to raise a rooster or two with our girls, so we are needing all the help we can get about tip on how to add, and when to add a boy into the mix. Thanks!
