Hi Everyone, I'm a newbie to raising chickens (first post here), so please excuse me for sounding so ignorant. I've been preparing to get about 30 meat chickens and I have them coming this week. I've read quite a few posts here and scoured the Storey's book on raising chickens. I felt prepared. Well, a few days ago I finished a movable hoop coop to put my chicks in once they are ready to move from the brooder. and when my neighbor saw it he asked if I would like one of his extra roosters. He must have known what he was doing because he asked me in front of all my kids! I'm not a dad who is afraid to tell his children "No", but they were so excited about the prospect of having a chicken, well.....I caved. So now I have a rooster that I don't need sitting in my hoop coop. My question is, when I do move my meat birds to the hoop coop, do I need to get rid of the rooster? Will he bother them or can they get along together? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
