Right now I have 4 chickens, one hen 3 roosters lucky me :/ I am eventually going to take the Roosters to the zoo to you program locally where I live in the use the Roosters to feed their livestock. I figure that's the best humane way to handle the roosters since I'm not allowed to have them on my property. They are 10 weeks old right now I only have one hen and I'm not sure when I should integrate her into my regular flock. They are faveolle hens, my laying flock and they're really nice and I'm pretty sure they'll treat the new edition with no issues. I'm pretty sure in two weeks I could just take her and put her with the other girls and it would be fine. My dilemma is what do you do about the food? She's not ready for layer Feed yet obviously cuz she needs about 2 more months before she can even think about eating that kind of food. But the roosters are already starting to crow in the morning and I know my neighbors are not happy about that. I was going to take all three roosters to the zoo do you program tomorrow. But that leaves my poor little hen all by herself and her mini coop. It's also cold at night now you know it gets to be about 20 degrees at the coldest at night and I just would hate to leave her alone in the mini coop. Ideas or thoughts on what would be best?
