Hi. I am new to this whole chicken thing. My fiance came home with a rooster that he got from some friend of his. Now I know I need hens to go along with him. I have a big coop and I pretty much just let him roam where he desires until sundown I then go find where ever he has roosted up and take him to the coop. I guess my questions are many. I'd first off like to know of anywhere I can get my hens. I am also thinking I'll get about 5 or 6 but not sure whats acceptable per rooster? So I just need plain old advice. I know I wont learn anything by just reading about it. I know I have to experiance it so just send some tips my way. Thanks everyone!
