We have what I thought was just a pretty hen named Mama, and I believe she is actually a rooster. I dont know a lot about owning roosters, but I do see a lot of people wanting to get rid of them. he has started getting pretty rough with my hens, jumping on their back and pecking them and stuff. I dont want any baby chickens, just eggs, but do they serve any other purpose that is worth keeping him for? They are free range so protection might be a bonus. Pretty much my girlfriend wants to keep him and if I can find a good reason to I will, but if not he is going to go.
