Last year, I bought 8 pullets from TSC and ended up with 3 pullets and 5 cockerels...sigh. Later that year, one boy went to a 4-h kid and we bought 11 more pullets from McMurry. We weren't ready to cull, but we've had 13 chicks hatch over the winter. The oldest 5 are in the coop in a 'play pen' and I suspect 2 are roos. We have 8 in the basement about 6 weeks old that are growing out of the brooder. It was just too cold to keep them outside when they hatched. This is what I see as my options-1-build another playpen in the coop 2-build a new area/shelter for just the roos until we cull or 3-integrate and watch the feathers fly. Our plan is to only keep one rooster. We figure the young ones will be ready to cull in May/ June and we want to process them all at once. Thanks for any advice!
