I have one rooster for our 4 hens (soon to be ten hens). We think he's an Australorp, but who knows? Our problem with him is we need to know wether or not we should keep him. One problem is he crows at five in the morning when we would like to get up at seven. Another is I have heard that he can be hard on the hens. Also, he might be too protective of his girls when I go in the coop. Has anyone experienced this before? We might want to keep him because I heard he would help when introducing new members to the flock, but I have no experience on the matter, so I need some help!
