my chix are almost 6 weeks old and i'm beginning to be able to figure out who's who. looks like i've got 3 roosters and 24 hens. this is my second go'round with chickens. i had 2 roosters in my last "flock" but got rid of 1 because he was way into "rough sex". i like having a roo, i like the crowing, they are fun and are good to have around for the hen's safety, but i think my current 3 to 24 ratio might be a bit much, right? i HAVE read that more than 1 is o.k. because each roo will have his "own girls" so the hens won't get over worked in the mateing department. what is YOUR opinion? should i loose 1 or 2 of them now or just let it play out and see what happens? have any of you had this many roos? if so, how did it work out?thanx for your input.
