I really do wonder about the influence of a rooster on a flock. At the moment, I will not be having a rooster due to all the horror stories I've read about the noise *although I love the sounds!*. Thinking on it, I'm starting to wonder if it would be worth it having a roo. So, can you just tell me all about them? Questions- Does a roo increase the chance of a hen going broody? Does a roo increase the amounts of predators? Does the presence of a roo affect a hen's personality? I've heard that a roo can settle them, make them anxious, or doesn't bother them at all. Thanks in advance! If you have any questions or comments, I'd really like to read them!
