    My name is Sandy. My husband and I just started a small coop. We have 28 hens and 4 roosters. Didn't know we could do without the boys. Live and learn. So hello glad to be here, have lots of questions.

    Greetings from Kansas, Sandy, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us!! You might also have two roosters too many - your hens may get overbred - causing injuries on their back from the rooster's nails. Good luck to you and enjoy your flock!

    [​IMG]I know I was surprised years ago to discover you don't need a rooster to get eggs. You DO need a rooster to have fertilized eggs.
