I am new to chickens. My first ever feed store chicks (eight of them) are now 5 weeks old and one of the white rocks is definately a roo. All others so far look like the pullets they are supposed to be. I live on 3+ acres - not too close to the neighbors so I figure why not just go with it and see how things turn out. I've read here about some breeds being more aggressive then others, that 8-12 to 1 is a good ratio, and then some pretty awful stories of bad situations. Do I have one of the aggressive breeds? Do I have too few hens? Can anyone share stories of why they love having a single rooster in their flock?
