    I am totally clueless but I do have 3 chicks hatched under a broody. I had Barred Rock roosters at the time.

    My question - I now have two 3 month old Trader Joe Leghorn roosters that I hope to keep. They were hatched at the end of June. They have 5 girls that they hatched with. They are in a coop with 43 other girls. The 7 hatch mates hang out together and do very little mingling with the other coop mates. The kids say "Buddy Little Big Comb" has crowed, I have not heard him. Will he ever mix with the other girls? Will he step up to do his job?


    If mixed with a brown egg layer will the hens lay brown or white eggs?

    Will the chicks be white like him or colored like the hen - I know a white hen and a white rooster will produce a white chick. A Buff Orpington hen + a leghorn roo = what
