I have one rooster, 4 hens, 2 of which are sitting.... I am wanting to add 3 more hens and a rooster. Can I do this? Will 2 roosters be too many for 7 hens? What will the roosters do ... will they kill each other, the hens... or what???

Thanks

I don't know about then hens, as long as they are all the same size I would image that would be ok.

As for the rooster when we got ours I let him roam around the outside of the coupe first and honestly it was love at first sight for everyone. He couldn't wait to get in and they couldn't wait for him to go in and it has been good since.
