    Wanting to get a Cockerol to raise up for the girls. Since I have a mixed group (Aracauna, Rhode Island Red, and Buff orpington) was trying to decide which breed rooster .
    Also, how many hens can one Rooster handle?[​IMG]

    Thanks! My Rhode Island female is very calm, so that might be the way to go.
