    Do you think that will work? I have my doubts... I just don't want a bunch of bared back hens. I'm scared to add more hens for fear my hubby will [​IMG] me! [​IMG]

    You need fewer roosters or more hens- 10 hens:1 rooster at minimum, 25 hens:1 rooster at maximum

    I think you should have some mighty happy roosters![​IMG] The hens don't mind sharing with all the other hens either, saves them from having a bad hair day:lau Good luck, & have fun![​IMG]
