We've been raising 6 Rhode Island Reds since they were chicks in order to have laying hens and fresh eggs. We recently realized (after watching its physical development) that one of our "hens" is actually a rooster. Help! What do we do? They all live in a coop together and are about 4 months old (not laying yet). Do we separate the rooster from the hens? If we want to eat the eggs does it make sense to keep a rooster around? If we want to get rid of the rooster what should we do - eat it? sell it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
