Yeah I really don't want one. If I whined up with more then one roo out of those four and the ones my broody is on, I'm going to try to cull if I don't get to attached. If the kids aren't here. I've already explained this to them. They don't want me too of course but they said if I did, they don't want to be home at the time. I'm sure they'll be more then one roo out of fourteen birds.
If you have my luck with roo's, then h*ll ya you will have some roo's. I was getting about 60% roo's out of my hatches this year. Sold my sister-in-law 6 chicks, 4 of them turned out to be roo's. Felt so guilty about it that I gave her 2-15 wk old hens that were close to laying & have had to try to find homes for her roo's argh.... Got 2 rehomed & a 3rd roo will be coming this weekend.
