Hello, I am Tammie from GA. I have a flock of pullets, five months old, I have raised since only a few days old. I love them! They are so much fun. I just brought two more pullets into the flock....about the same age. I also brought in a cockerel. I was hesitant to do so but I just could'nt resist.... I am nervous about the cockerel....do I keep him in with the flock or separate....I am not interested in hatching anything at this time. Also when do cockerels begin to crow?? My pullets are in a coop and free range about 5 days a week. This is a great forum. I am new here and new to chickens, but I am really enjoying them!
