So, back some 3+ years ago I got four Wyandotte chicks, really only wanting 3 but figured one wouldn't make it or be a cockerel, as it turned out all were pullets. One of the 4 I recently put down after unsuccessfully treating for prolapsed vent. Deciding to augment the flock, after much hemming & hawing as to get 2 or 3 chicks I finally went with 2 Australorps. Now as fate would have it, even though these were sexed chicks, now 9 weeks old, it is almost certain one is a cockerel. The chicks have been housed in their own coop & run for the past month next to the hens. They all free range together, the hens are unable to get into the chicks run. That is their safe haven! The question is, if at some point I decide to cull or rehome the cockerel, how will the single pullet fair with the 3 hens? Should I rehome the pair & get 3 chicks next time out. Probably get 2 cockerels & 1 pullet! Thanks!
