So as the title says - i got an offer for 2 free roosters - 1 buff orphington and 1 Rhode Island Red. (their "young roosters" and the family didnt really "plan" on having roo's - just kinda happened from what I hear. Kid 4H kinda thing. But their not really a rooster raising family) I have 7 Americauna & 1 Black Copper Maran hens. Now - here is my elementary chicken raising question - understanding the mechanics of chickens and roosters and "mating" - how do I keep my free range hens free from embro's in their eggs? Plus - is it "ok" - to have 2 other breed roosters with my Ameraucana's? Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
