They are legal as long as they don’t make a nuisance. I agree I need some fine tuning to the coop because I just made a few changes and didn’t finish. I do keep them locked in the hutch that has two nesting boxes and two roosts but is only 25x30 inches.Welcome!
Your cockerel needs to be legal where you live, or move him on elsewhere ASAP. If you can keep a rooster, and want to, and if he's polite, then try it. Or, have a nice home grown dinner, or send him to someone who will enjoy him.
Two or more pullets are better than one! No chicken should live alone, so for sure get more pullets, with or without your cockerel .
That first very very expensive egg will be wonderful!
Your coop and run need help to be safe for them, cute as it is. post with pictures and dimensions on the Coop thread for help here, before some nasty critter wipes them out. Sorry, but that's how many of us start with birds, and we learn by rebuilding after disasters.
Chickens are fun, and beautiful, and those eggs will be terrific when they arrive.
