I see where many of you will have 3-4 hens and 1 rooster in your breeding pens. My question is regarding the hen/roo ratio. From what I've read on here, it's recommended to have 8-10 hens per roo. But it seems to me from what I've also read on here, alot of breeders don't follow that ratio. So how do you keep your hens from being harmed by over-mating? I'm asking because I'm considering getting into breeding when I have a flock I'm satisfied meets the standards or better, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible before I jump into something like that. Ps, if you have any tips or opinions on breeding, feel free to post them, like I said, I'm trying to learn as much as possible.
