    Yea, just realized nine of eleven Bantams ended up being roosters. I can keep them but that many roosters may not be a good time...

    That is pretty bad! How many hens do you have? Probably not enough to keep that many roosters...

    Are the other approximately 46 chickens adult hens or pullets? Are your chickens free range?

    You could probably keep eight or nine roosters with that many hens, though it is pushing it. But I think fourteen is too many. That would only be about three hens to a rooster.
