Yeah, I'm sure I will be just like a mother hen when they have finally hatched out...out there all the time, checking to see that no one hen is getting jealous or bossy. More space is a great idea.

The daddy rooster. If chickens allowed to form their own natural groups you typically have one rooster and one or two hens plus their offspring in a harem. Most of the time we force artificial social groupings on the chickens to optimize egg production.

Oh, ok. Well, I don't have any harems goin' on in my coops. I have flower children (ie: chickens), living on a commune, sharing everything. And I do mean, everything!
