    This is terrible information then. Out of 8 chickens 5 are roosters. It sucks I wasted all this time and money on them and will now have to cull them all today.

    Cull them for eating, instead of throwing your time and $ out.

    Oh I'm def culling them soon. That's no problem I'm just dissapointed I had so many. It was kind of funny everyone I talked to when I got into this said get double what you think you need because half will probably die. At least none died they were just roosters.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Usually you don't need to get double what you need. As long as they are well taken care of, they shouldn't die.
