    I think I goofed please forgive me. I care for 20 Hens and 1 Rooster named Lance. He was given to me, he is a Black Australorp. Struts his stuff too. My flock consists of Buff Orphingtons, Barred Rocks, ISA BROWNS and Amberlinks. All brown egg layers. I milked cows for 25 years, now I am a widow and retired.

    What did you goof? A rooster for that many hens sounds perfectly wonderful to me! As long as he's not attacking anyone and just goes about his business, I wouldn't think you have anything to worry about.

    Your flock sounds lovely! I hope you enjoy it here!
