    We have 15 chicks that are almost 8 weeks old. We have ended up with 2 roos and 13 pullets. One roo is a Dominique and the other turned out to be Barred Rock (was supposed to be Dominique). We have 3 Golden Sex-Links, 4 Buff Orpingtons, and 6 Dominique pullets. I do want to add more, just haven't decided exactly what though. (I wish I could have 1 of everything [​IMG]) How many hens would I need to keep the guys happy?? I would really like to keep them both. Thanks for helping.

    You have more than enough hens for two roosters.
