I am looking to get 3 chicks total, 1 rooster and 2 hens. If you live in the Roanoke Va area and sell please let me know
Ok thank-you!It sounds like you would like to hatch your own eggs in the future? That one rooster will most likely run the 2 hens ragged. Even if he is a wonderful flock protector, he would be better off, as would your hens if he could spread his amorous intentions out between 8 - 12 girls. My unsolicited advice is to get 3 pullets, and hatch some fertilized eggs from an other flock when you're ready.
