    Hello all,

    After putting in my time as a fellow grunt worker for the establishment, I have retired and decided to smell the roses. In other words, I decided to keep a couple of chickens. What a delight it has been. I'm a city girl and all of this is a new exciting experience for me. I am eager to learn and appreciate any helpful advice from my fellow members.
    Currently I have a rooster called Rout a bantam and my newest addition is a hen called Hennessy. Right now I am enjoying Rout
    ' s mating dance to entice Hennessy. So far she is not interested.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm so glad you have found your chickens to be a delight :D It's a great hobby to have, they are so relaxing as you watch them go about there chicken business. I'm sure your flock will grow and grow. There seems to be no stopping that happening!
    I'm sure Rout would be more than happy with more girls. More girls for him would also stop any over breeding of your two you have right now.

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future and enjoy BYC :frow

    Congrats on your retirement and entry into poultry! Yorkshire coop is right, the more females your rooster has the easier it will be for the girls. One roo can easily handle 8-10 females.

    It's nice to hear you are enjoying your birds, thanks for joining us!
