Hi, I'm getting excited about beginning to breed to the SOP in the spring. I'm choosing breeds now. I have a pretty simple, newbie question for you (and if it's in the wrong place, I hope the moderators will move it). Question: I read a lot about keeping/breeding "trios" and "pairs." But, don't the roosters just kill the backs of hens in such close quarters? I mean, I've read that a reasonable ratio is one rooster for every 10-12 hens to keep them from getting bare backed. So, how do breeders keep trios and pairs healthy?
