    6 roosters-2 hens

    I ordered ten 'female' Barred Rock chicks, lost two in transit. Of the 8 remaining, 6 are roosters. I had no idea I had anything to be concerned about until I called the hatchery today.

    Too many Roos

    Question. I have a flock of 19 now 18 birds. They will be a year old in May. We unfortunately had some miss sexing and have a total of 6 roosters. I know the flock isn’t equipped to handle that many boys but unfortunately me and my kids fell in love with them. They have all gotten along...

    Rooster Flocks!

    So I think that more people need to know about rooster flocks. I think a rooster flock is a good way to keep those "extra" roosters..... All you need to do is make sure there aren't any bullies, and if there is you might want a bigger pen for them. Here's a pic of my flock of 5 roosters

    What to do with an extra rooster?

    I think I already know the answer to this, but I have to ask so my mom will be satisfied: Last August my mom and I bought six newly hatched chicks from My Backyard Chicken: five hens, one rooster. (Because my mom's boyfriend HAD to have a goddamn rooster, and my ma won't say "no" to him.) We...
