    I have a flock of 1 yr-old hens (47 of them) and I've been wanting to add a rooster for a long time now. Just now I found an ad on CL for 2-month old Buff Orpington cockerels. I would like to pick one up but was wondering how difficult it will be to integrate a 2 month old roo into the regular flock. My hens have never seen a roo before so I have no idea how they'll react [​IMG] Is 2 months too young or should I give it a shot?
