I am about to be a first time chicken owner. I have 25 chicks on the way in February, some I'll keep, some will go to friends. I plan to keep about 14 chickens. I have one brown leghorn rooster on order but I am not sure if I should go through with it. I'm worried about him being aggressive and most of all will he ruin my hens' backs? I want them as pets first and egg layers second. I wanted a rooster for the crowing and the look but I don't want hens with gouged out back feathers... I appreciate everyone's input!
