Of the 5 new pullets we got last spring, one "became" a barred rock roo. The good thing is, he is not an obsessive crower; the bad thing is - we don't have any need or desire for fertilized eggs. I've heard some rumors that hens lay more with a roo... are "safer" with a roo... etc. It was truly a hassle trying to find a home for our last pullet-to-roo experience. But, if this one does not become more noisy or aggressive, and the neighbors don't complain, we might be OK keeping him. My question is, Is there any good reason to keep a roo if you aren't breeding?
