    Well, I was asked this a week ago and I had to think. WOW, do I have seven ROOSTERS!?? YES, I do have seven and I didn't even realize it until I counted each one. They vary in ages but they are all just sweet as a button YET. My oldest one is about 6 months old and he is a bantam cochin. I then have a Serama boy who thinks he's BIG mixed in with my hen house crowd of 14 who all free range...have a huge cochin roo boy "Steele" who resides in that hen house action as well. The bug roo tolerates my Serama roo and all if fine so far. The serama is by FAR the dominant roo but can't get enough umph to jump up onto the big hens LOL Then I have my Mille Fleur D'uccle group with one roo to three hens. Then I have two silkie roo's (I think) for sure I have one Silkie roo. SO there you have it. I didn't even realize I had that many! How many do YOU have???

    I have two, Zeus and Thor and I love em both to pieces! Even if Thor is so scared of me (as I am the alpha) that he knocks over everything and everyone in the coop the minute I walk thru the door, trying to get out of my way.
