Are there any good reasons to keep a roo if you don't want them to breed? I have 2 bantam Cochin that are laying, 1 Polish that i'm trying to incorporate into my flock and 6 silkies from 2 months old up to 4 months old. I've been trying to incorporate the Polish hen into my flock for the past week and this roo is just hounding her relentlessly. She is so shy and calm she just puts her head in the corner and takes it. He's mostly just pecking her then pacing back and forth and then back pecking her again. I made up my mind to get ride of him today after he went after one of the silkies. I had them all free ranging together and one of them apparently caught his eye from across the field and he just made a B line for it. What's crazy is he is awesome with the 2 existing Cochin. So I'm wondering if there are any good reason for keeping a roo if you don't want to breed? I know I could eat him, but i felt him up today and he's so young and skinny it would be a waste.
