Alright, I have a RIR roo that should be hitting maturity really soon. He has never been aggressive. If he is roosting, he will let me pick him up. The only time he gets right up under me, is when I am feeding them. Overall, he is a nice guy. Then, I have a Red Star roo. He is only about 6 weeks. The sweetest thing I have ever met! He was the first in the batch of chicks to jump right in my lap and fall asleep. He climbs up onto my shoulder when I am just standing there talking to them. I know he is still young, and things could change, but I would hate giving him up! Now, I only have 9 hens. I cant even have a rooster, but my neighbors are great, and dont mind. I can only keep one. I plan on hatching a few chicks every year, but only of good mixes. Ones that will be good layers, not mixed breeds, that no one will want. Here are the hens I have: 2 RIR 1 Red Star 1 Pioneer 1 Black Star 1 Silver Spangled Hamburg 1 Dark Cornish My problem with getting rid of the RIR rooster, I got him with one of the RIR hens, and they are super close! Also with each other, I named them Johnny and June! They do everything together and hate being separated. I want to keep the rooster though, that I could make the most chicks with, since I wont be keeping any of the chicks, until it times to start swapping out chicks with older ones. I need to be able to sell the chicks. What do you think?
