I have 24 straight run BOs. I have a LOT of roosters. They are going to freezer camp. One of my questions is, how old should I allow them to get before we cull? I have 2 different age groups and the older ones are definitely maturing. They are always after the hens... (my hens will be SO glad when there are less roosters). I'm unsure of exactly how many roosters I have. Some are quite obvious, while I think some of the others are either later bloomers or part of the younger group. Also, as far as temperament, at what age does a rooster reach full maturity? I'd like to keep a rooster or two, depending on numbers in the end, but I don't want to keep the jerks. I have at least a couple now that are more gentlemanly, but is it too soon to tell? They are all this years chicks. I have ages on the two BO groups on a calendar, which I do not have in front of me... but I can get later if need be. Thanks all!
