Hello. We will be bringing our roosters to the local farm auction next weekend. One is very mean and the other does not stop crowing. Our neighbors are very tolerant but no need to push it. That will leave us with 2 hens. One full size and one small, both are a year old. We have ordered 16 new chicks coming the 28th. My first question would be do you think it is still ok to free range my chickens with only 2 or when we are at the auction should we get some hens. We have 16 chicks coming but if we NEED hens(for safety) to hold us over what is a couple more? Also, now that there arent any roosters in the coop would we be able to mingle the chicks with the hens earlier or should we still wait 6-8 weeks. Both of the hens are very sweet and have never showed any aggression towards anybody or each other. Thanks.
