I keep one rooster only. If the day comes when I can't buy just-hatched chicks from the mainland, then I'm going to have to breed my girls. We already can't bring ducklings from the mainland anymore, thanks to DLNR's ruling.

There are a lot of different opinions on roosters. Some people hate them and think them the devil, some think that they're unintelligent, yet roosters can be really fun to be around and form an integral part of any flock. People keep them for a variety of reasons - do you?

I absolutely love my Roosters! I have three. One in the coop. Two outside. As we all know the have different personalities. Dirk protects the ladies. Wilson brings them bugs and whatever from the outside world (Jungle Fowl are the best at this). Tex is a bit of a jerk but he keeps the free range ladies in line and also makes sure the yard and forest is safe. He's the first to sound the alarm. Either by chuffing or another alert. Wilson picks up from there then Dirk and the whole yard is a crazy chicken chours. They are better than dogs in daylight. Nighttime we are on our own. Unless it's a coop disturbance. Wilson & Tex are 25 feet up in bamboo.
