I usually get fertilized eggs for my broody hens to hatch, but this year I am considering getting some chicks and hoping my mamas adopt them (fingers crossed). I am down to my last buff Orpington and want more plus some silver laced Wynodottes. I'd like to get a male chick of each breed so that my hens can hatch their own chicks without me trying to find fertilized eggs every year. My question is, would I be able to keep just the two roos together separate from the hens? I don't want them to stay with my hens all year because I don't want them to cross breed. I have the space to have two coops (One for hens and one for roos), but I've never kept a rooster before little lone 2! I could also keep each roo with about 10 hens each if that would be a better idea! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, any help on getting my broody hens to adopt chicks would be great too.
