I have another begginer question for anyone that can help. Now that my chickens are getting old enough to tell there sex. It apears that I have quite a mixed flock. I want to take the time to tell what I have or think I have then I will ask for some advice. 1 Belgian D Uccle (Bantam Hen) 1 Hamburg (Bantam Hen) 2 Langshans or Hungarian Yellows (Standards 1 Hen, 1 Rooster) 1 Plymouth Rock (Rooster) 2 Rhode Islands Reds (1 Hen, 1 Rooster) 2 Wyandottes (1 Hen, 1 Rooster) 1 other (Bantam hen) 1 other (Bantam Rooster) 2 White Ducks (Don't know sexes yet) Now from what I have learned so far I have way to many roosters for the number of hens I have. I really do not want to grow my flock right now until I see how everything goes. I am sure when they get to breeding age there will be fights, and bald hens. I do not want either of these. So do I need to put a couple roosters in the freezer? Or will they be fine? What Rooster should I keep for the best protection for the flock? Or what roosters should I keep for cross breeding with the said hens if I choose to do so. The neighbor has everything set up for hatching eggs and said I am welcome to use the facitities if I want. 1 thing I have learned, DO NOT buy chickens fron Tractor Supply. They tell you they are all females and they are not.
