Should I get a rooster and if so what breed?

    I placed an order for our first ever chicks in Nov. 2013 from MPC that will be here around 5/12/14. I ordered 10 total all hens 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Cochin, 2 Golden Buff (Comets) 1 Delaware and 1 Dominique. My husband and I now wish we had ordered at least 1 rooster. Should I order a rooster and if so what breed? I picked docile/friendly hens so I would want something like that in a rooster also. Or does anyone think I should wait to see if I get a roo? HELP please. [​IMG]

    You may get a surprise rooster. I'd wait it out. If you don't, there are SO MANY roosters in need of homes. You can find one later on. :)

    We really wanted to start them all out around the same age but we may just wait and see what we have. Thanks for you help.
