    I have a small flock of 12 silkie mixes (just figured that out). I have 3 roosters to 9 hens. 2 are 20 weeks old and the other is 15 weeks. Is this going to be a problem? I'm tired of eating roosters. [​IMG]

    Just what I was afraid of. Sounds like freezer camp this fall. Ate three already. Thanks.
