So when do you guys think the bird will lay?
I've heard of bachelor pads working really well. Sometimes they don't though. For me it worked for a while the first 6-8 months wasn't bad. After 8 months my boys got more and more rowdy and stopped getting along.This spring, I got ten Silkie chicks. (All survived) I have 4 hens and 6 roosters. I know that that is too many roosters. A few of the roosters are kinda aggressive to the hens and other roosters. Is there anyway to fix this behavior other than re homing. I’ve grown quite attached to my feathered angels.
