    I dont have room for my Australorp roo to have 10 hens. Is it ok to just have 3 hens to a roo or should i just get hens?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Yep, that is fine. Just keep an eye out to make sure he is not over mating. Some people keep only one male and one female together and that setup usually works fine. Problems arise when people keep MORE roosters than hens.
