Hi i am a new chicken owner and i was wondering what kind of rooster would be best for a new owner.
I have heard nothing but great things about the Barred Plymouth Rock boys.
ok thank you but i have one more question... do i need a rooster if i want eggs to cook with???
no. you only need a rooster if you want the eggs to be fertilized
Quote:Wish mine was in the great boy club, LOL !!! What a sh** head he is !!
Quote:A hen will lay with or without a rooster, if you want to hatch babies then you will need a rooster !! Do you have any chickens now ??
I've heard silkies are wonderfull. In my opinion my white leghorn is the sweetest
True that about the silkie roosters
they are one of the most sweetest little guys you would ever find for your hens.
I've also had a leghorn roo but he got attacked by the feral cats
he was a sweet little guy :|
My single speckled sussex roo is pretty well behaved, now that he's the only roo.
Quote:Wish I could agree 100% on this with you all! My Silkie roo was wonderful, BUT he sure did tear into my new, HUGE, 26 wk. old Welsummer roo! Sweet on the outside, but a raging ball of furry on the inside!
As for what type of roo to get, that all depends. Each breed can have their good roos and their bad roos. I have heard lots of good things about Buff Orpingtons roos though. Speckledhen is also very fond of her Barred Rock roos as well. I wish you lot of luck with choosing a good rooster.
