How many bantam hens do I need for 4 bantam roosters?
1 rooster can handle up to 15 hens.
Thats a lot of chickens....
10 to 12 hens per roo is a good guideline for standards, not sure if it changes for bantams.
Depends on your goals, the demeanor of all birds involved, and the available housing.
Let me guess:
You got or hatched some chicks, now have 'too many' males,
and you want to know a ratio of males to females to keep things harmonious and peaceful?
It doesn't quite work like that....so let us know what the story is and we can probably help you figure things out.
Well I originally bought my bantam rooster(don't know what age) so I bought him 5 "ladies" because I wanted him to have babies. The thing is I had to wait a bit more to check to see what breed/gender they are. I checked them last night after having them for about a month, and it seems that we have 3 more roosters.
About 2 months. The other rooster is weird and I need help on him. He was crowing when I got him but the freed store said he was like 2 months.
