I am a new chicken owner. I researched and read and thought it would be much easier than its turning out to be. Funny enough with every question I would google, the answer I would click on ALWAYS turned out to be on this site. So here I am. I love my chickens, most of which are turning out to be roosters! So now I get to decide what to do with them. From now on will purchase hens that are already laying. I have 3 Delawares (2 roosters confirmed), 1 black Orpington, 5 bantam Frizzle Silkies (2 roosters confirmed) I want to have at least 10 laying hens eventually. How many roosters? My favorite is a silkie rooster. If I keep him can I keep 2 roosters? He is so small.
