    I am kind of new at having chickens and have been reading alot on here so now I need some help.
    I have 19 hens and wanted to have 2 roosters. One Rooster is full grown an I am thinking hes an Old English mix, the other one is a young White Cochin. The Old English chases the Cochin all over the run to the point the Cochin stay hiding inside the nesting boxes inside the coop. I have tried changing out the Roosters with another Old English, an at times an older Cochin but no matter what the Cochins end up hiding inside the house. Is there any way I can get them to get along. Of the 19 hens I have 5 White Cochins and the rest or different breeds that I have not fully identified. Is one Rooster enough for all the hens???

    Are you keeping him in there for fertile eggs or just company?
