I am a retired teacher and have recently moved to the country where I am renovating a century old home and gardens.. I thought it would be fun to raise chickens in a coop instead of a classroom incubator so bought some 2 day old "sexed" chicks in the Spring... surprisingly, 9 of the chicks were roosters and I have become very attached to them.. they are now 23 weeks old and the hens haven't started laying. I realize that this is a ridiculous question but how many roosters can I reasonably keep? I have 9 hens and 9 beautiful roosters including wyandottes, hamburgs and cochins.. so far everyone has been getting along very well but today I noticed one rooster (McMeany) acting very bossy and aggressive. I'm having a hard time coaxing them into their coop at night and wonder if they feel safer roosting in their fenced yard outside than inside with McMeany? I appreciate any advice you experts might have for me.
