    Roosters can handle 10 hens, so by the time he is feeling his oats, you really should get several more hens. Otherwise the rooster will badly injure and overbreed the one you have now. If you don't want fertile eggs to hatch or to sell, hens are perfectly happy without a rooster.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on drumstick diva's advice. Too many roosters can be very hard on your hens physically; over-breeding them, biting and plucking the feathers from their necks and backs, battering them, and potentially, seriously injuring them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
