I recently added 3 pullets to my existing flock of 2 adult hens (we lost 5 of our originals to a bobcat). I ended up with a rooster and I am interested in keeping him on at least for the mean time. I have read that it may not be a good idea to have a roo if the hen ratio is low like mine, at only 4. Also I did not hand raise the pullets so the new chickens are a bit skittish. I am not able to hold any of my chickens at this point. I lost all of my best hens to the bobcat.... I do have children the youngest is 2.5 both kids enjoy going into the backyard and gathering eggs, feeding,etc. I would love to get some fertile eggs and incubate to teach my kids the process of egg hatching. I am a bit nervous about the rooster because I haven't handled him much at all. He is still small at only 4 months, he has not shown any aggression yet and is still timid of the adult hens. I know this will change as he gets older, but I am just looking for advise and others experience, especially with such a small flock of hens. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
