I have some Cornish/white Rock hens that will be laying in September October, one Rhode Island Red hen 9 months old, and a Rhode Island Red rooster 9 Months-old. They live in a coop that is 8x8x4 and is 2 feet off the ground. They have a fenced in area to patrol that is about an acre and a half with many trees and bushes The winter gets to 25-30 degrees and the summer 90-95 degrees. I plan to let the flock grow a bit. I know some people that want some hens for eggs plus I think it would be fun to watch the flock grow. Not to mention the extra meat. I would prefer to have a hands off approach. You know just let them do what they do naturally. Other than the normal feeding and cleaning I would do in a 10 hen flock. I would be trading out my rooster every 9 months to prevent in breeding. Is there anything I will need to do?
