I am fairly new to this and need advise from all you experts. I have had 2 hens now for a little over 1 year, really have enjoyed keeping them so have decided to expand as i would love more and 2 hens really don't provide enough eggs for my large family. Over the last few months i have done a few small hatches, 2 ixworth chicks hatched by my hen and i think they are 1 pullet and 1 roo but i'm not definate, 5 pure white silkies and again i'm almost sure 2 are definate roo's as they keep facing up to each other on a daily basis, 1 light sussex almost definately roo. I have just hatched 7 pekin/silkie mix bantam, they are only 3 days old so no idea what they are as yet and i'm about to put in 12 black french copper marans in the bator in the next day or 2. Sorry this is long winded but trying to explain propely lol. My question is how many roo's can i happily keep together with out fighting, i do plan to keep the batam breeds section off from the full size breeds. They will each have their own coop and run.
