I need help! I am obsessed with chickens and I can't get enough of them. Recently I have been allowing the broodies to incubate eggs. I love it, but my dad says that we can't have more than 30 laying hens and 2 roos. Right now I have 19 laying hens, 2 roos, 6 too-young-to-tells, and 4 incubating eggs. I did the addition and that means 30 birds when the eggs hatch. And half of the hatch are going to be roos. How can I get rid of all the roos? I would post it on Swaps Forum but I am too young to participate in a swap. Does anyone want chickens? I completely, totally, absolutely refuse to cull any birds. And every year there will only be more chicks. If you live in lower Idaho maybe we can see about getting you some new chicks. Or if there are other solutions out there then I would love to hear them.
