right now I'm facing my first, well, not my first, but, facing a quandry. I had two batches of eggs hatch under broodies. Now they are growing up, fast. One set is 13 weeks old , I had 8, I have 6 left - 4 are roosters , 2 are pullets. I am keeping the pullets as replacements for my present egg flock ( who are now 1 year of age). The question is, when do I need to be concerned about the roos fighting over the female? 2 are now crowing , yuck. I can't seem to give them away and they are too scrawny to eat. and I don't want to keep them to eating size as I have 3 roos already who don't shut up and I'm thinking the neighbors wouldn't appreciate a whole choir of crowing roosters.
