Hello Can anyone tell me how many roo's I would need for 21 hens?
Two will be OK
Are you wanting fertile eggs for hatching? or do you want eggs just for eating? What's your plan for your hens? If you are wanting fertile eggs for incubating and/or hatching, then I would recommend 1 or 2 roosters but no more. My ratio is 1 rooster per 10 hens and I have over 100 chickens and all of the eggs are fertile. Just my thoughts. I'm sure someone else will come along and chime in.
