Hi, do you have to have a certain number of hens per rooster ? I ask because I used to have 2 hens in with the rooster and he pecked on one of the hens so bad she had a sore on her head. I separated the roo from the hens, and it healed . I would like to breed to get more but wonder if he will do it again. He did that in ONE day ! Also, I was wondering if I should wait to let them breed because of the cold weather ?
