I have to chose before next Friday - which 1 of the 4 White Leghorn roos to keep and which of the three 12 week olds to give to a friend who will use them to depopulate his acreage of ticks and bugs. IT'S SO HARD TO CHOOSE! Is there any criteria I could use to make this easier? I know 2 of the roos have crowed because I saw two crow at the same time. However everyone looks the same so I can't tell you which of the two crowed at this point until they crow again and I somehow mark them with bluekote or something! haha! One of the roos seems to hang around with the pullet - should I try to figure out which one that is and keep that one? He is the one who crows all the time. I figure she's with him because he's the leader of the pack and if he were not around she'd be with the next one in line - am I right? or do chickens have preferences in mates? Of course the thing that makes this hardest is that these were our first hatched eggs and first clutch! My babies will be gone and I will miss them - it's corny I know!
