    Here is what I have: 5 RIRs, 4 SLWs, 4 GLWs, 3 Delawares & 2 Doms. I am considering getting a rooster to hang out with them. Are there benefits to having a rooster in the pen other than the obvious of having fertilized eggs? Also, of my 5 different breeds listed above, which breed would you recommend (and why) of rooster should I get to hang out with all of them? Thanks so much for your input! [​IMG]

    Not really. They will eat alot & crow non stop. Roos are great if you free range.
