    1. do all hens and roos get spurs eventually or is it just all roos?
    2. do all roos have green tail feathers, or is it just certain breeds?
    3. can one roo and one hen be kept alone together in a coop or will the roo
    end up hurting her from too much activity? [​IMG]
    4. if my girls are 12 to 13 weeks old, will we get eggs before winter or will we be waiting until spring?
    *to anyone who replies, thank you for your answers![​IMG]

    Not all breeds of roosters have green in their tails...some breeds are all one color even their tails...

    One hen to one rooster will be overmated...my opinion

    You should get eggs by winter...most Spring chicks start laying early Fall...some breeds tho don't lay as soon....
