How long do roosters act like hormone crazy teenage boys (no offense to any males out there)?!?!?! I'm trying to find homes for 3 of my roosters, but no one seems to want roosters. So now, my only hope is that the teenage boy horomone crazy stage of their life doesn't last long and I can keep them and have one big happy family. One other question...How many roosters is too many for a flock of 12? Here is my breakdown: 3 adult hens (~1 year old...all laying eggs) 3 roosters (definitely know they are roosters) 1 suspected rooster 1 silkie that I'm told is a rooster, but that has shown absolutely no signs of being a rooster 4 hens (not yet laying eggs) All but the 3 adult hens are ~15 weeks old. I had always heard that you shouldn't have more than 2 roosters per 12 hens, but I'm having trouble finding this in writing. Ugh. Thanks all.
