    I have enough hens right now but would like to get rid of some (we have way too many) so how many hens for 3 roosters

    Rooster 1 is a easter egger full size and is 5 years old

    Rooster 2 is also full size and is a mutt around 3 years

    Rooster 3 is full size a mutt and 3 years

    Thanks for any help!![​IMG]
