I have 9 chicks about 8 weeks old and a hen thats laying. I am thinking about getting a rooster, is it ok to introduce a rooster to this flock( is it safe). Or do I have to wait till the others are bigger?
My hens matured about a month after my roosters. So for a month I had to separate my hens from any rooster. The roosters were just too rough and the hens were just not interested. So I'd wait until all your hens were mature (laying) and then look for a rooster.
