So what's the minimum number of hens per tom and how many toms in a group with hens? For example is 4 hens and 2 toms a bad ratio?

During breeding season having 2 tom's in the same pen would not be advised.
But a single tom can handle 10 hens with no proble,
I have some with only 2 hens and some with 6.
