A rooster doesn't require hens, but they are happier that way, are you talking about bringing him into a room in your house.

Show us some pictures!
Chickens are flock animals, he might get lonely by himself.
You won't have baby chickens unless you incubate the eggs yourself or let a broody hen hatch them for you.

He's a frizzle Cochin? That would be a very nice rooster, most are very nice with their hens, either bantam or large breeds.

Honest opinion??????I have a decent yard but I'm not a farmer....Will 2 chickens be ALOT more work than one.....other than checking for eggs obviously and do you think they will wander farther now there are 2 chickens

Two chickens are easier because they will keep each other company so you don't have to as much. Mine have 40 acres to wander, they usually don't leave the yard, chickens will mostly stay around the coop as long as they are fed and watered.
