    I have a flock of sfh and I I have them free ranging with Rhode island red flock as well as all Bantus. one roo is a yr old and four 6 nth old roos as well as others all running together and were not raised together. all get along great unless feeding time then I throw out feed everywhere so the don't conflict much. I have pens being built to seperate them soon. my school all lay white eggs.

    [​IMG]if you intend to keep the extra roos you'll need a lot more girls. One rooster can take care of about 10 hens. More roosters and the poor girls get overbred and injured.
