How many roos? We are moving and we will be allowed 99 hens and they said 1 roo.
Holy Moses! Is he gonna be busy or what???
Well, one rooster can service up to about 12-15 hens. You could rotate them in a separate pen, if that is what you are asking......
I'm just sayin. Whoever put that ordiance in place has no idea abbout chickens. By the way, it's 2 roos not one.
Quote:Not very realistic, is it?
I was just thinking that perhaps they had meat chickens in mind when they made that rule? Non chicken people making the rules.

He'll be dead within a month of his coming of age. He'll sure love his ladies, but he'll get so frustrated over not being able to mate them all he'll mate himself to death Not really, he probably won't die, but unless you rotate him you'll have really bad luck trying to hatch eggs! LOL!
I started laughing at the guy one the phone with the county when I called to see what the limit is. He started laughing too.
LOL, I wish I could have 99 hens!
I wonder where they came up with that particular number?
99 bunches of hens on the wall, 99 bunches of hens-take one down and pass it around-99 bunches of hens!
