    Hi I'm MultipleAnimals I have two white Rhode Island red mix roosters I have a silkie I am not sure how old it is or if it's a rooster or if it's a female I also have a Rhode Island mix hen and her babies there were 14 babies but I sold 7 of them so now I have only 7 babies I also have a boxer Dalmatian something mix dog because I don't know who the father was but we owned the mom she was the boxer Dalmatian I own two cats technically I only have 1 cat but the other cat hangs out with my cat, so I own two cats I also own a cute little bunny probably only a few months old and he is cute I'm not sure if it's a boy or girl. I only have one hen but I'm looking to get more, I live in Texas and I am 16 years old and I don't tell anyone my real name I hand built my chicken coop and I handmade my chicken waterer.

    Wow! Welcome to BYC, and good idea on waiting to get ducks until you can afford the feed - some don't exhibit that much common sense.

    A rooster can handle 10 hens each, so for every rooster you keep you should have 10 hens for him. Otherwise keep just one roo and rehome or sell the extras. Roos can be very hard physically on hens and may overbreed and damage them. Hens will be less stressed lay just as many eggs without a roo but will not be fertile for hatching.
