So this is probably a stupid question and you're probably going to laugh at me but I was wanting to know can I have a rooster with my egg laying flock? I am going to be free ranging and we live near a forest park and are on 5 acres so we have our fair share of predators. I don't want them to get eaten this is my first flock and I want them to be safe. People keep saying get a rooster but I am getting the flock to have eggs to eat I don't want anymore baby chicks! Is this possible?? I don't want to eat a baby chicken egg!!!!!
