We are happy to finally be chicken owners. Picked up 8 brown hens and 9 cream hens 5 days ago. They are 3.5 weeks old now. My question is do we need a rooster, and if so, when should we get one, how many should we get, and when do we introduce him to our hens? Also, do you think we have ISA Browns and Buff Rocks?
BYC has educated us much over the last 5 days so we are grateful for your input!
