First, pardon me for being completely ignorant on the subject. There are two 1+year laying hens and three 5 month old pullets roaming the grounds here. Those five are just beginning to get along. There's also three more pullets under a week old in the brooder. Aside from the obvious (fertilized eggs), why do people have Roosters? I hear they're loud, obnoxious, and beat up on the girls. This is an honest question, as I personally think they can be very handsome.
