Okay, so we got 6 newborn chicks for our first flock. We wanted to end up with 3 hens and thought that, out of the 3 sexed and 3 straight runs, we would get 3 girls! Wrong. They're about 7 weeks old and we definitely have 2 hens and 4 roos. We have a Speckled Sussex and Belgian d'Anver hen and a Golden Laced Wyandotte, Golden Laced Polish, and two Belgian d'Anver roos. We're going to keep the girls and possibly one of the Belgian roos, but, we still want another hen! Leaning towards another Golden Laced Polish. So, now the question is, how do we get another hen!? Should we try to encourage broodiness in our hatchery chicks after they start laying? Should we put some newborn chicks in the mix now? (I don't know if we can even find newborn chicks so late into the season!) Should we add newborn chicks in the spring? Add older chicks? An already laying hen? We don't have a lot of pecking in the group. We've had some really good weather lately, so they've had a lot of roaming around the backyard time. With so many roos, there's a little bit of "I'm bigger than you are!" sort of play, mostly by one of the Belgians who is half the size of the other roos! But, they really do get along quite well. So, we're not too worried about bullying problems. Our hens are really docile with so many roos! But, who knows how they're going to be months from now.
