We have one sussex rooster and he has been great taking care of his 5 ladies. We have chicks now and it looks like we just hatched a male. Will we want to butcher him since it is better to have only one rooster with our clan? If we don't butcher him will we have some rooster fighting and general unrest with now two roosters? And I am sure we can expect another male to match, so at what point do you have too many roosters? I have no issues with butchering and eating a rooster, so that is not a problem. I would rather do that since sell him. Your thoughts? At some point are there too many hens for just one rooster? Our one sussex rooster has been handling 5 ladies just fine.
