    Hello,
    I'm sure this question has been asked before. I have an order coming from the hatchery this week for 20 day old pullets. I requested one cockerel. At what age should he be separated from the others? We have raised layer hens for 6 years now, but have only had one rooster in that time frame.


    Thanks.
    Leo
     

  2. why you need to separate them would determine when they need to be separated
