    Thanks Ron! I assume then that the boys sort out their order as well as their respective harems within the flock. I have the chick survivability, and effecient layer production down but the last piece in completing flocktopia would seem to be roosters, three I think. The trick then is to find three fine but lineage-wise diverse BA roosters...

    Yes, They will work out their pecking order. You may need to experiment and introduce them slowly. Brothers raised together would be the best way to go.

    Great project!
