Hello, Looking for some advise. I now have 13 chickens (1 cockerel and 12 pullets). I had to give away a big part of my flock yesterday because these chickens were reproducing at an alarming rate. I though love having at least 1 rooster, the one I have is very mellow and does an awesome job in watching over the pullets, so don't want to get rid of him. Neutering him is out of question, as I have heard not many vets do it and I don't want to stress him, so now wondering if there are other options. Please note; I know I can prevent chicks from hatching by simply removing the eggs from under a broody hen but I don't want to do this. I hate causing stress to my flock and getting broody hens angry and all their vocalizations would alarm the whole flock. I know, I know, I am a wimp. Would it work to have some of those nesting boxes where as soon as the pullet lays eggs, they roll down and away?
