Hi. I am Debbie from N.C. I have Rhode Island Red chickens and one rooster. We did have 4 roosters, but I heard that the chickens won't lay eggs if there is more than one rooster, so we gave the other roosters away. I wish I had kept that last rooster we gave away, because from looking at these posts, having more than one rooster doesn't matter. Oh well, live and learn. We have had our chickens since the spring, but no eggs yet. We lost a few while they were younger to a possum I think. Anyways we had a trap put outside and there was a possum in it, and since then we haven't had any more chicken to go missing.
