Right now I have a coop big enough to house 10 or so chickens very comfortably. I have 3 buff rocks, 3 black austorlorps, and 1 barred rock. All hens. They are all just shy of 8 weeks old. I live in town, but there are a couple people within a few block radius of me that have a rooster, because I hear them crowing. I don't really know what I would need a rooster for other than the sheer curiosity, and enjoyment of looking at it, and once in a while hatching a few eggs. My main goal when I started the whole chicken raising idea was for egg production, and of course I needed another hobby to keep me occupied. If I get a rooster will I still be able to collect eggs daily, and not have to worry about the really nasty bloody eggs. This is for my wife not me. She will not touch an egg if it looks like it has blood in it. The worst case scenario is that I got a rooster, and it didn't work out, and I had to give him up. Which is no problem. I have several friends that live in the country, and raise chickens, and would take them with no problems. So to sum up my lengthy drawn out question. Should I get a rooster, and judging by the breeds I told you I already have what breed of rooster should I get?
