I had a thread going on the breed/gender section trying to figure out if one of my girls is a boy - now I know she's a he. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=375641&p=1 I don't have any intention of getting rid of "her" as she/he has been a favorite from the start. Unfortunately I only have 4 birds and my current set up really isn't big enough to hold more and have them be comfortable (I'm thinking though that is what will probably need to change). What I'm really wondering is if anyone has had any long term success with a small hen to rooster ratio? He's still young and growing but right now my new boy is smaller than the 3 hens and they all get along great. He has been the boss since the start but he's never been mean and has always been friendly to me too (once when the tractor spooked him he almost jumped into my arms). I guess I'm just trying to figure out what I need to expect going forward now that instead of having 4 hens I have 3 hens and a rooster.
