Hello, I am new to the forum and also new to raising chickens. My neighbor and I have decided to raise chickens. He grew up with chickens on his Dad's farm, I have no experience with livestock of any kind, however, I am a very large gardener/small farmer. We also live in a very rural area. We are going to get 40 birds. The birds are meant to be for our 2 families needs. He wants 20 laying hens for the eggs, and is recommending 20 roosters for meat. That seems to be a lot of roosters to me. Is that ratio going to cause a problem? Our coop size will be fine, I'm just worried about the amount of roosters. Thanks!
