6 week old welsummer. Scared I have another roo. I hope I'm wrong.
Cockerel - sorry
That's what I thought. Thanks
Cock-a-doodle-roo! So sorry.
Thanks for the info. I have another question for you guys. After I introduce my new birds to my current flock, I'll have 11 birds. Will two rooster be too many? I don't want to get rid of either of my cockerels. They are both beautiful birds.
Seems like 2 roos would be pretty hard on the hens but I'm no expert.
You'll need more pullets or fewer cockerels...
Okay so I guess the question now is, which would be the better rooster A brown leghorn or the welsummer?
6 of one, half dozen of the other really....
People will like one over the other and it'll go both ways. Realistically, and especially with hatchery stock birds, there isn't a lot of difference in them. The Welsumer will throw a brown egg whereas the Leghorn is white. The welsumer has the ability to create sexlinked offspring depending on who he is paired with - I don't know if that's the case with the brown Leghorn as I've never owned one. I'd keep the one you like best, looks best, and has the better personality...
