Found an add in the newspaper of a young rooster, I will just type what it says: Young Rooster, Buff-cauna. Friendly, good for young flock. $7. Alright here is the story, I have 8, 9 month hens and Possibly getting 4, 2 or 3 year old hens from someone. I don't know if this would be a good mix. I would not be using him for breeding very much at all, but maybe for predator protection. I sometimes have my young cousins come over but very rarely, and I am wondering if he would get aggressive after a while. I also heard that roosters crow more if there are other roosters in the area, but we are the only chicken owners for miles around, so not quite as much crowing. I really want a rooster but it probably won't happen, but I was wondering what others thought about the pros and cons of having a rooster. You might have figured out that this is my first time having chickens!
