Thanks again for all input..... I just thought of 2 more questions.... If we get a broody hen and end up with peeps, then they grow and we get a roo, can he mate with the others since they all have the same fther? I know this might be a dumb question, but does incest matter with chickens? Also, if a roo starts to become aggressive (he hasn't attacked yet, but he did chase the kids) is there a way to teach him to leave us alone? Are you supposed to kick them, lol? That is what my DH tells me to do if there is an issue.
