Well, here I am, staring into the pen at the roosters I planned on BBQing when they reached an appropriate age. Two barred rocks, two partridge chanteclers, and a white giant stand there and staring back at me like they know what Im thinking. What they dont know is I really dont know if I can do it. If they were nasty or mean, maybe it would be easy. OK, lets say I couldnt go through with it. Is it OK to have 5 roosters living with 24 hens? Is it too many?
