Question of the roo's

So... its been a little while. I have a lot to catch up on, but first I want to ask you your opinion. Our sweet chickens are growing up and we are finding we have some roosters. Actually we have to many roosters. So some must go. Help me decide which ones to keep and reply on your thoughts. I have pictures of what they should look like when full grown.

First, we have the possibility of at least 1 silkie rooster.

Next, we have 2 Polish possible roosters. The first a golden laced Polish and the next a white crested black polish.

Next, we have 2 Golden laced Wyandottes. They are very pretty, close to your traditional rooster.

Next we have 2 Partridge Cochin Rooster. Close to the same marking just fluffier and not quite as bright colors.

So...We are thinking 4 roosters should be our max, that means 3 have got to go or turn out to be hens. We will have 19 or so hens and 4 roosters. What is your vote?


  1. Do you think the other bigger roosters will leave the silkies alone and won't have a rooster fight?
    If they won't kill each other, then 1 silkie, one golden-laced Polish dog, white-crested Polish dog and a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

  2. Oops!
    I might have gotten those names mixed up!

  3. O.K. well I would keep the polish roosters. Just think of all the polish jokes you could blog!

  4. I like the white crested ones. I think that the headress makes them look like they should be the king.

  5. Wow how to choose. Sad that you have to get rid of some. Could you just get rid of one of each. You had down that you only had one silky so keep that one and then one of the two on your others. I hope that made sense. Let us know what you decide to do.

  6. Good stuff. Thank you so so much for sharing your knowledge with the world through the Internet. Wonderful blog and post you got here
