I have one rooster. I'd like to get some chickens. I know the peeps will be at the Tractor Store soon. If I got some chicks, when is it safe to introduce them to the rooster. How do I know which peeps are hens? An old farmer told me that if you pick a chick up by the head (between your index and middle fingers) the one who fights is the rooster. I also heard that one rooster will need many hens or he will mate them to death. I want the chickens for eggs. Is this unfair to the rooster??
