You may have a snake, be careful (i pretty much assum every predator is a snake if there is a hole their size in the ground)

Well, if you have only two pullets, you need to get rid of all your males, except maybe one. You should have no more than one rooster for every 8-12 hens, really, for best results and no overmating of the hens. Sometimes, depending on the rooster, you can give him fewer hens.


Are you sure they're males?
