We have a LOT of roosters and only a few hens. We decided to order straight run and eat the extra roos. How on earth do you know which ones are the better roosters for their breeds. I don't want to go only on personality. We have Buff Orpinton's, SPeckled SUssex, and partridge Cochin bantams. THese are the ones where I am going to have to sift the possibles and come up with one roo of each breed... I would really appreciate any tips esp from someone who knows what to look for in each of these breeds. I think I have only one cochin hen and three roos so I assume it would be better to get it down to one roo to one hen... What on earth to do with extra cochin roos!? I doubt whether there is enough meat on them to eat and besides they are more like pets than the dual purpose breeds. Ideas anyone? Our flock: 8 Buff Orpingtons, 9 Speckled Sussex, 4 Golden Polish, 4 Partridge Cochin Bantams, 4 White Silkies, 1 Black Rosecomb.
