My husband, bless his heart bought a blue cochin rooster roughly 1 year old, a red rooster (not sure of the breed), 3 japanese white hens and 4 japanese white roosters. As it stands everyone has their own home in very large dog crates but I hate the idea of having them cooped up at least temporaily. I take turns letting them out to graze and run around for excercise. I have absolutely fallen in love with the first 2 mentioned and the hens are really sweet to. As for the Japanese white roosters...I just don't know yet. They're beautiful but I'm afraid as they get older they are going to pick on the hens more. Any ideas on more permanent abodes for the roosters or should I seriously think about getting rid of them? Thanks for any input. We are working on coops and runs as fast as we can just wondered if anyone had any real cool ideas for the pickle I'm in.
