This is a little off topic, but figured I’d ask...do roosters add value (not monetary) to a flock? If someone‘s intent isn’t to hatch chicks, and there isn’t free-ranging activity for a rooster to manage, should someone still have one for a flock? I have eight girls - only three are old enough to lay - and I’ve wondered why people have roosters (not a snarky question - genuinely wonder). Do they keep the ladies in line? Calm them? Keep them from bad behavior (I have a feather picker EE right now)? Anything of that sort? Or are they mostly breeding / watchdog beneficial?
