My husband told his friend that he and his wife could have some hens and a roo. I do have one too many roos. And we are getting more eggs than we can sell. So I said sure if they build them a good coop and run. Tonight I went out and sat with my flock. They are my babies. How can I get through this? The roo is not a problem. He's so pretty but very unhappy since the other roo whips him. He needs to go. But my hens. I love my hens. I can part with three that I didn't turn into total pets. But if I send three hens and a roo I'm afraid the roo will be mean to them. I'll have 11 hens and a roo left. And the biggest problem .... he told them that I had five extra. Oh what a mess. Chicken pros ..... will the roo be mean to the 3 hens? He's not overly aggressive now but he's not king of the coop either.
