Now that my flock is maturing it appears there are 3 roosters and 11 hens. (Already culled a fourth rooster). The current roosters are: 1 White Silkie (General Tso), 1 Black Laced White Polish (Whitey), and 1 Barred Rock (Henri). I don't really want to part with any of the 3 roosters but from what I understand, 3 roosters is too many for 11 hens--i don't like the idea of risking any of them getting hurt and crowing from 3 roosters is probably too much for the neighbors. Which one (or ones) would you let go of? The flock consists of 2 Wellsummers, 2 Cuckoo Marans, 1 Barred Rock, 4 White Silkies, 2 Buff Laced Polish, and 3 Black Crested White Polish. The Three Roosters: 1. The Barred Rock rooster is the largest bird in the flock and very gentle and mild mannered now. As a younger bird he went through a phase when he was being aggressive with other birds so I separated him for nearly a week--he shaped up and after that has showed no further aggression except some posturing one-on-one with other birds at times. The Barred Rock does not readily allow himself to be handled like most of the other birds. He is very watchful of what is going on around the flock at all times. He has the most pleasant crow of the three roosters. 2. The Black Crested White Polish rooster is exceptionally sociable with humans. He likes to be handled and readily jumps up on your lap if you allow it. He also actively protects the flock. For example, one of my dogs is allowed loose around the chickens when I am out in the yard. A couple of times, this Polish rooster has chased the dog (an Australian Shepard) across the yard away from the flock. He is the loudest most frequent crower. 3. The Silkie rooster: The other day he was lunging at the Polish rooster, grabbing the Polish by the neck and biting him. Like all four Silkies in the flock he is fluffy and cute.
