Hi, everyone! So, to start out, I will explain a little. I wrote this article: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/raising-roosters-as-a-part-of-your-backyard-flock titled, "Raising Roosters as a Part of Your Backyard Flock". If you haven't seen it yet, click the above provided link. A brief summary is below: In the article, read about... ~ rooster myths, ~wrongful behavior ~proper rooster behavior ~correction of wrongful behavior I have raised 5 roosters total as pets so far. Even though roosters are NOT required to get eggs from your hens, once you have one, you'll want another. There's nothing like the sound of a rooster crowing to know you're at home. Anyways, if you have any questions about my article, my methods, or just want to chat about roosters, post here! I LOVE pictures, too!
