Hello! I hear there are sooo many people joining this forum every day, well I'm another one! I'm so glad to be a part of this site, I have learned so many things from it. I figured I might as well join and learn about all things poultry! I just started my flock of chickens this year, after seeing one of my friends' coops and birds, I was hooked! I have 6 Golden Comets and 3 Black Stars (I think, they were supposed to be Barred Rocks but clearly aren't). I guess this will be my first question: 1. I have 9 birds that are all about 5 weeks old. It is difficult to tell what gender they are but I was wondering, if any are roosters, how many should I keep? I hear that one rooster should have about 10 hens to watch over so... Thanks for any advice.
