When we bought our day-old baby chicks this spring we knew that there was a (good) chance we would end up with a rooster amongst our laying hens, even though the backyard breeder we got them from tried to convince me she could sex them at 90% accuracy. HA! A rooster wasn't really in our plans.... So now that they are about 11 weeks old, we have come to realize that we have not one, not two, no, not even three, but FOUR cockerels! Aauuugghh! My one and only experience with roosters was being viciously attacked every time I entered the coop (he didn't remain in my care :-( ) SO I don't know what to do with theses guys... Our primary motivation for having a flock was to get eggs. I am torn as to what we should or can do with four roosters! I have young kids, and I worry that they can get hurt. We are very hands on with our flock and are somewhat attached to all of them... Eating them isn't an option! Please- I need advice here.
