I have: 18 hens (I believe) 2 bantams (girls/1 possible boy) 3 guineahens 3 roosters I don't want to have chicks running around all the time. Hubby won't eat fertilized eggs. So, I'm looking to you all for wisdom! How have you all successfully kept your roosters from mating? Keeping them in a separate area? Would the 3 roosters get grouchy together with/without girls? Also, would the bantam rooster mate with standard hens? I heard about chickens mating with guineas - has anyone confirmed this? Thanks!
