    Right now I have ten hens and one rooster, I'm about downsize to six hens and the roo. I've heard from different sources different numbers of hens to a rooster, which leaves me a little stumped. I wanna make sure this will be a healthy ratio for my girls. So I was wondering people's thoughts and/or maybe your smaller flock ratio/count. Thanks
