Hello friends, I have a rooster question..... I had a small flock of 8 birds (2 roosters 6 hens) raised from hatchlings, at 6 months old the flock was attacked and both roosters and 4 hens were killed. I am beginning to consider rebuilding the flock and my husband is wondering if we should forego getting anymore roosters. He asked me if I thought the roosters crowing was possibly "calling out" the predators. My flock was attacked in midday by a fox coming out of our 20+ acres of cornfield that abuts our property ( they were free- ranging at the time). Is this a valid concern? Is all that crowing just letting the local killers know I have a quick accessible meal close by? Thanks for your input.
