Hello. We had bought 6 chickens 9 weeks ago. The person we bought them from said we had 1 rooster and 5 hens. Im afraid we may have more than 1 rooster. One is already starting to try to crow. Im not sure of their exact age. We bought them as chicks. Thank you for your help.

Oh no!!! We can only have 1 rooster! What do i do now?
You can either try to re-home them or eat them.
If you really want to keep all of them, you would need to make some adjustments.
You could figure out a way to have 4 Roos in one enclosure and 1 roo with a hen in another enclosure. But then you would have to have a whole separate coop 🙁

Im trying to find more hens in my area. Maybe if i have a whole bunch of hens, the roosters wont fight each other? I read somewhere that that is possible.

Yes that might also work but you would need at least 8 hens per rooster. 😬 That’s a lot of hens!
