I know this question has been asked again and again....but should I get a roo? (YES!!! I should!) Hopefully I get a good mix of enablers and responsible types answering this post to provide me with balanced feedback. I want one SOOOOO bad. But I'm in town so I'm not *technically* allowed. But there is a classified ad for a 4 month bantam buff brahma....and he's pretty cute. So, do bantams actually have a quieter crow? And is it wise to have a bantam roo with LF hens? I have 4 LFs and 1 bantam hen. And prior to actually taking him home I would ask the neighbours their feelings regarding roosters. So far they dig my hens, but the hens don't crow. Sigh....stupid expensive rural land! We live in wine/fruit growing country, so land is outrageously unattainably priced for the time being. Otherwise I would have 5 acres and all the chickens I could shake a stick at.
