Out of stock
A Rooster is the perfect addition to a limited number of flocks. Before considering getting a rooster check with council restrictions and consider your neighbours (and possibly your own sleep disturbance). Roosters can be very noisy, but they also play an important role in a flock.
- Roosters encourage foraging
- Roosters protect their flock (please note roosters cannot protect your flock from fox predation or other nightime predators)
- Roosters are good at protecting flocks from aerial predators where the flock has a large open range
- Roosters provide a fertile flock if you wish to breed your own chickens (be advised that you will have at least 50% roosters in your fertilised eggs!).
- Roosters are not suitable around small children as they can get quite aggressive
- Roosters eat as much if not more than a hen for no eggs!
Roosters are not sold individually only as a bundle with your hens. Do not introduce new young roosters into an established flock (with pre-existing Rooster).
