I was out free ranging my 25 just starting to lay pullets yesterday and a guy walked up and asked if I had a rooster. I said no and he asked me if I wanted a rooster. I asked what kind and he said a yellow buff mix. I have 25 girls of different breeds and was toying with the idea of perhaps getting a rooster next year but thinking I should get one of the breeds I already have, which he isn't. The rooster is free, he said 1 year old, not mean, but he only has 15 hens and 2 rooster so little guy is locked up cause bigger rooster picks on him. Have also heard a rooster protects the flock, do I need one just for protecting? If I did take him I would have to quarentine also, right?
