My rooster has gotten on my last nerve. He's got to go. Luckily, I have two more cockerels. They are both about 14 weeks old. Question, how do I introduce them to my hens? They are both big shots and I'm still trying to decide which of the two to keep. They are obviously smaller than my hens (one is a Porcelain d Uccle and the other is a Mille Fleur d' Uccle) my hens are EE, BO, BSL, BA, BR and Production reds. Do I need to wait until the one I keep is older or will he just assume the Rooster role even though he is smaller? How would 'chicken surfing' work in that department? lol Will they pick on him or see him as the flock leader? Will he assume the role of leader like a full size? Alerting them to danger, leading them to food,etc. even though he is half their size? lol I guess I just assume the "man" should be bigger, stronger,etc. I'd like to keep a rooster with them for protection but honestly my current rooster is more trouble than he is worth! Another reason is because my Silkie is slow and docile. My rooster is VERY large and aggressive which is ok with my full size girls (he is not in with my bantams, just the full size hens) but he would most certainly hurt my Silkie, so having a bantam rooster just seems like a better idea since everyone is scheduled to merge their coops together in September. Thoughts?
