    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 was just thinking that perhaps they had meat chickens in mind when they made that rule? Non chicken people making the rules. [​IMG]

    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 [​IMG] Not really, he probably won't die, but unless you rotate him you'll have really bad luck trying to hatch eggs! LOL!
