I have my eye on an 11 month old Buckeye rooster. My pullets (I have fifteen) are all about 5 months old. Will this age difference be a big issue? I'd like to have the roo for protection and breeding, but these girls aren't quite laying yet (hopefully any day now, though! ) I guess he would have to be quarantined for a month-ish if that makes a difference (12 month old roo w/ 6 month old pullets). The reason for my post is that I was reading others and saw where someone wished they had waited to introduce a roo to her flock. I wonder if the problems would outweigh the benefits. Another question... if I get this roo, should I ask them for a hen to go along with him to keep him company during incubation, or does that open a whole other can of worms? Thanks in advance for your opinions!
