In the Brooder
- Jul 22, 2009
I have 10 hens to one rooster. He is a beautiful BIG RIR. Hence the word BIG. About half of my hens are just bared backed from him. I was thinking of retiring him to a friends farm and getting a bantam rooster. Would the hens have a hard time adjusting to the new rooster and would a batam still protect them as well as a standard rooster?? Maybe some saddles would help, he just seems to over power some of the hens..
