We are making the turn on our second year of raising chickens and will soon be introducing new chicks. Last Spring, we got 20 chicks from our daughter's class when they hatched during an embryology unit. We ended up with 15 roosters and 5 hens, so we did a fair amount of butchering. On the advice of a neighbor, we kept 3 roosters and all 5 hens. They get along great and spend most of the day wandering around our acreage as a group. There is some riding, but it doesn't seem too bad. One rooster is definitely in charge, one would obviously like to be and I think the third is just happy to be here. We will get a new bunch this Spring and are concerned about the dynamic of having 3 roosters and what appears to be a tightly knit group. We have read quite a few forum posts on introducing new chicks to one rooster, but didn't see anything similar to our situation. The consensus is that it's generally not a problem with 1 rooster - does anyone have any experience with more than one? Does it even matter? We can easily remove two of the roosters if necessary, but would prefer to keep them all if we can. Thanks very much to all - we've learned so much from this site.
