I have 11 bantam hens and 6 bantam roosters. Have tried to find homes for the roos, to no avail and I just cannot bring myself to put them down. So, I have two roos each (they get along, but only with one another) in one cage, two others that get along in another, and the third pair that get along in with the hens. I rotate them. Right now one of the hens (the biggest - a white crested black Polish) is quite badly pecked on her back, so guess she's the female of choice. So I have ALL the roosters in separate pens. This is my question(s): 1. Am I being mean keeping the roos separated from the hens? 2. Should I divide the hens up with the roosters? (Or are there too many roosters for the number of hens?) 3. Would it be more humane if I just get someone to put the roosters down? 4. Does anyone know of a place that would take them? I heard of a man in Mendocino who had only roosters on his property, but could not locate him. I have one white crested black Polish, one red Frizzle, two Old English, and two mixes of Old English and Silver Sebring. All are really beautiful. Thanks for your help!
