    I have two gangs of birds 3 and 3

    buff orps - 2 hens one rooster

    black copper roo and two hens

    they coop together but roam in separate packs, if I am able to keep my roos does this work out for roos and hen ratio or will i have to give the girls a break from their respective boys. thinkng also that nature will take over and the roos will go for girls in both groups- if so, will that cause too much commotion with only four hens between the 2 roos?

    I'm afraid you are going to end up with overmated, stressed out hens. Roos aren't too particular about breed. To them, a hen is a hen is a hen.

    My wolfhound is a mix. Gonna get her DNA tested soon. I just HAVE to find out where her big pointed ears came from. [​IMG]
