How old are they now?I have 4 Australorp 3 buff orpingtons and 1 polish. All hens. I have 1 Australorp and 1 BO Rooster. Will I have problems with over breeding?
You'd need to segregate them to do that, so you might split flock into separate coops/runs....or free range on alternating days.They are 23 weeks now. The roosters mate the hens quite often that I can see. Feathers are normal for now! My goal was to keep the rooster from each breed so that I can breed true breeds in the spring. but I can eat the other rooster if needed. Won't bother me a bit.
