Hello! I am new here. I have had chickens for about a year. We started with a Jersey giant, a Brahma, and 6 baby red pullets (golden comets maybe?) We acquired about a month ago 19 more chickens (Easter Eggers, a Buff Orphington, a few Black australorps, a silkie, and a black Cochin rooster) from my husband's cousin, then last weekend got the rest of his chickens including 9 Leghorns. We now have 50 hens and 1 rooster. Last night, a possum was in a nesting box. We saw how he got in so we are going to secure it tonight. But after we were in bed, something pulled an Easter Egger through the nesting box (they are built so eggs roll out) and bit off her head. We are guessing it's a raccoon. We are in northeast Ohio and don't have bobcats or anything like that. Would a more aggressive rooster help keep out predators? I love the Cochin but he's so docile and slow moving. He doesn't even crow. Would it be ok to keep two roosters together? Thanks!!!
