    Quote:I have 3 EEger hens and what I belive to be 3 Amercuna(I think thats how you spell it.[​IMG] Bear with me Im alittle new to this.) Roosters! One of my roosters developed alot faster than the other two! My hens are called Glory Porscha and Skittlez and the roosters names are Bobby, Nermal, and Plekly! Lol (I know weird names.. lol) But anyways Bobby thinks he is the head rooster and Nermal is the second! Plekly is kind and gentle like the hens.. I have Bobby and Nermal In a seprate coop.(They dont try to kill each other! Yet!lol) and Plekly is with my hens.. It wasnt done on purpose to get 3 roosters because I didnt want roosters I only wanted hens! lol My question is.. What do I do with the 2 meaner roosters? Bobby has attacked my 3 year old several times already and I have done everything I can to keep him from doing it..(hince the reason he is now in a seprate coop) I cant give him the life he deserves here on our little farm.. And my daughter is afraid of him now!(He use to be her favorite!) What should I do with the two roosters????? Please can some one help me... Another thins is.. All of my chickens are about 5 months old now and still no eggs! I have started giving them a laying feed along with scratching feed and they are free range everday until dawn and than back to the coop! Can someone please help me! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hello and welcome to BYC! From what I have read, it's best to have 8-10 hens for 1 rooster. I don't have any roosters, but there are many who do on this site. Good luck and it's nice to meet you.
