In the spring we are ordering 25 straight run chickens from mcmurray. We are going to get a variety of heavy dual purpose birds. Hubby wants the roos for meat when they are big enough but I though we should keep 1 or 2 for mating so we don't have to buy chicks in the future. I have a bit of a thing about eating fertilized eggs, just weird I guess, so I was thinking we should keep 1or 2 roos in a bachelor pad. A fenced area in the coop seperate from the girls with its own pop door into the smaller bachelor sized run with a compost pile in the back. would 1 roo get lonely all by himself in his run, would he need another roo for company or would that be a bad idea. Would they fight? Please share your tips on this situation.
