Hello again everyone! I have two main questions to ask in this thread! 1.) What are good female to male ratios in a mixed flock? How many ducks should you have to a Drake? And geese to ganders and roosters to hens? There are 7 breeds of chickens that I am interested in and the hatchery I was looking at (Purely Poultry) has a minimum order of 3 each so that would make 21 hens total. How many roosters should I have for that many hens? Is one rooster fine or should I have more? 2.) What are some good breeds of roosters that are friendly and docile? I know that you need a rooster or roosters in a flock but every rooster that my family ever had when I was still living at home were mean and always tried to attack me leading to my wariness and borderline fear of roosters. So I was wondering what you guys think about breeds that make docile roosters. I've heard that Barred Rock roosters are pretty docile and easy going, is this true? And what other breed are there? Thanks in advance for any replies guys!
