Hi Everyone, We have 8 hens right now that are 1 1/2 years old. We are planning on getting about 5 more early next year. One of our Araucana is going through a hard molt right now and got bullied. We separated her from the rest until she is done molting. Both of our Araucanas are the lowest in the pecking order with our girls. Our Rhode Island Red and Wellsummer are on the top. We have been thinking of adding a rooster to our flock to help with the pecking order. We were thinking of adding one when we get the new chicks next year. The rooster will grow up with the new chicks next year will he only be loyal to the new chicks or will he establish himself at the top of the pecking order with all of the chickens new and original (older)? We will have 13-15 chickens after we add the new chicks is 1 rooster enough for all of them? Thank you for your help/feedback in advance.
