I placed my order for 25 chicks on the following rationalization: I wanted 1/2 to be egg layers, and 1/2 to be for meat. When I placed my order, the 1/2 I ordered for meat I ordered as males because they are larger than the females. Did I make a huge mistake??? Am I going to have way too many roosters in the coop and is all craziness going to break out??? Or am I safe believing that the chickens will make it to the kitchen table before they become overly protective/dominant/etc.? My chicks aren't coming until the end of April, so I think I can still call McMurray and change my order if need be... Thanks for your help! And one other question, at about what age do roosters start crowing?
