Do I have to order a rooster for the hens to lay? If not, how do I ensure I only get females and no mails. I've seen what damage roosters can cause on hens by clawing and plucking their feathers
You do not need a rooster for the hens to lay eggs. Only if you want fertilized eggs for hatching. We have a 90% sexing guarantee on the birds.
