    I ended up with 3 roosters... I love them all, and don't want to give any up. They are 12 - 13 weeks old... am trying to brood enough females to support 3 roosters. My question is... how old do the females need to be to support 3 roosters:? (I only have 5 hens the same age as the roosters.)
     

  2. You still need 15 pullets minimum, and anything from 24 weeks can do, according to my point of view, here in SA I saw eggs from 32-36 weeks, on BYC I learned that pullets lays eggs from 24 weeks
