I have 7 straight run Australorp peeps on their way to me, which basically means to me that roughly half will be roos (is that about right?) The pullets of this flock will be added to my existing flock of 6 one-year-olds. Statistically speaking, I will still only have enough hens for one roo, and thus the others will need to be rehomed. How long before a roo is recognizably a roo? At what age do Australorp roos become sexually mature? I have never had a straight run group before, and obviously have a hundred stupid questions to ask the experts. I am so grateful I know just where to find them! Thanks, in advance, as always! Bright Blessings!
