The Easter Bunny brought our first ever chicks for Easter! The problem with them is, that the Easter Bunny didn't have very good luck picking them out. Out of 12 he brought, we ended up with 8 roosters! Not very good luck for sure. They are 4 weeks old now and the roos are getting pretty feisty. Every time I feed them, they attack me! Needless to say, the roos are finding new homes A.S.A.P.! My question is this. Is is necessary to have a rooster? People here are telling me that I need one if I want my chickens to eventually lay eggs. I have seen some people here, I thought, that get eggs and don't have a rooster. So, do I really have to have one?
