    Can I house a rooster and two drakes together with no hens?

    I had two roosters in a coop that were getting along fine until last week when I had to temporarily remove one to heal a foot problem he has. Now they will not get along at all and I don't have an ideal place to put my other rooster except for my duck pen, where my two drakes live. These guys...

    2 free buff Brahma bantam roosters to good home magnolia, TX

    Both boys are great and healthy. Very spunky and not flighty like a lot of Roos. Bought them at 3 days old, told they were pullets and that is not the case. Both are sweet but are trying to mount my hens (as they will of course) and the girls are NOT having it. Let me know if you are interested.

    Rooster flock? Questions

    As an Easter gift, a friend has given me 6 roosters and a hen for my free range flock. I "collect" roosters you could say, but it is beginning to be more than I have coop space for. I have 2 coops planned for building this spring and summer. I got this idea, and have heard it before, can I...

    My Roosters and Chickens are Growing:We should have eggs soon!

    My roosters were 7 months old when we got them in January and my chickens were four months old. They're growing vigorously. We got the chickens in February. I'm figuring it shouldn't be long before we have eggs and I'll never have to buy eggs again. Along with my eggs, I will have other little...

    2 Roosters in need of a home in Southeastern MA

    We have two roosters we need to rehome. They are both about 9 months old. We already have three other roosters and only seven hens. One of our hens hatched them last year. They are half Rhode Island Red and we are not sure what they are mixed with (Either another RIR, Easter Egger or Copper Maran).

    Not a chicken person- yet.

    We did have chickens long ago, back in the 70's- they were our children's pets, really. After 25 years in Humboldt County and 36 adopted senior greyhounds, I am back in Southern CA with a little home of my own. Costly as property is here, near the beach, I have 3/4 of an acre running right...

    3 hens, 3 roosters??

    Hey, my grandad has kept chickens for years. And I. The past he has kept 3 hens with 3 roosters. Is this normal? I know that normally the number of hens is surpassed to outnumber roosters? But he had no problems what so ever? I’d love to hear any stories you people may have of your chickens

    Roosters Attacking Hens and Me! What should I Do?

    Photos of your meat

    I've not yet butchered a chicken but I am hatching more now and finding homes for the boys is becoming increasingly difficult. As such I'm only used to big meaty store-bought chickens. I think my next hatch is going to be Legbar (not ideal for meat I know) and Wyandotte. Does anyone have photos...
