thank you so much excellent information-I got these BB Red English bantams from a wandering mother that hatched them near our driveway-my son collected them up and brought them inside it was still pretty chilly early spring. Initially there was like 5 or 6 Roosters and about a dozen hens, they all of a sudden showed up wandering the neighborhood, as they matured some got picked off by hawks, we never did find out who in the neighborhood brought them in, one of our other neighbors gathered up the remaining hens and last rooster, he also created a coop he allows the ones he caught to free roam daily but puts them up at night, I do not allow the ones we raised to roam, with all that being said I have 4 Roosters and 8 Hens, I wasnt sure about letting the hens hatch any littles because I wasnt sure if it was the right thing to do.
....or remove all the 'extra' males4 rooster's to 8 hen's isn't a good ratio. Is there a way that you could add more hen's for the boy's?
Why not break her?I still have one hen sitting on 3 plastic egg's that she has been trying to hatch.
Is she broody?I feel bad that little mama isnt happy with me stealing her eggs lol
Who knows what breed(probably a mix) or relation they are to one another?<shrugs>I got these BB Red English bantams from a wandering mother that hatched them near our driveway....
