    Welcome to BYC. Depending upon their size and temperament, 2 roosters may be one too many for your small flock.

    Agreed. I have them separated each with their own girls. I love them to much to give any up :)

    Hello [​IMG] and Welcome to BYC![​IMG]

    Happy you joined! If I were you I would get at least another hen for each rooster. 1 hen and 1 rooster can get stressful for a hen. Hope you have a great time keeping chickens!

    I've been wanting to get more hens but I'm nervous about introductions. My barred rock hen isn't very nice to new birds. She attacked my salmon faverolles pullet and now she's with my other faverolles

    [​IMG]Well I do actually have a question! This morning I saw my barred rock hen poop formed milky white poop. I've seen one other poo like it but she's acting fine. Still eating and drinking. Saw her in the nest box this morning which is nice Bcz she's been laying on top of them for the last few weeks causing them to freeze and break.
