My flock of Buckeyes(24) are 17 weeks old now and there are too many roosters. I found someone to process the extra roos for me, but now I need to decide which one gets to stay. Several are bigger and a couple are smaller than the others. So far, none have exhibited extreme bad behavior or docile good behavior. I would like to raise some chicks if a hen decides to brood . So should I keep the biggest roo,for good breeding stock, or does it matter? One of the smaller roos is a little calmer, but that might be because the big guys chase him. I hope it doesn't turn out that the one to stay is the fastest cause I couldn't catch him.
