OK, I have a batch of meat birds to butcher in 2 weeks, and I also have to make some decisions on the other flock. I ordered a chicken coop assortment from Murray McMurray and am really quite pleased with the ratio of hens and roosters. So to get to the point here's the dilemma, which roosters do I cull? 1 White crested black polish, very nice looking bird, quite vocal, very attentive to the ladies 1 Gray (blue) and white with black polish Same as his brother above oh and my wife is in love with him, so he's kind of a no brainer, but DW says she'll take some advice. 1 golden polish....this bird is going to freezer camp, just a goofy bird. 1 Buff Orpington, very mild mannered, just starting to crow 1 Barred rock, he is HUGE already, but doesn't worry much about the ladies as of yet. 1 Araucana Rooster 2 Questionable Cuckoo Maran Roosters thought they were barred rocks, but they have some crazy looking feathers coming in. Here is what we have for hens- 4 Barred Rock hens 3 Maran Hens 1 Polish Hen 1 Buff Orpington hen (her sister was Bald Eagle Lunch) 1 Silver polish hen 2 Straight feathered silkies 2 Cochin hens 1 frizzle So experts, What say you all? We do want chicks eventually, but want to take this list down to 2 roosters. A couple of the roosters are no problem. I was thinking of saving the wifes Blue polish and either the barred rock or the buff. BUT Maran's would be nice.......so would....oh forget it, any Idea's?????
