I tried keeping one rooster with my ten hens this past year, but it got to the point where half the hens were missing most of their feathers off their backs and tops of wings. We live in Minnesota where it gets to -20 degrees in the winter so I can't risk having naked chickens this winter! Mr. Rooster was given to my neighbor for chicken dinner this spring....But now I have two more roosters from a hen that hatched out four eggs this spring. I really want to be able to keep them, they are so handsome, but I just don't know what to do. I have seen some flocks that have roosters, and the hens have all their feathers...Any suggestions? I don't really want to keep two separate groups. Are some roosters just more into breeding than others?
