A Point On Mating

I have fine roosters a year old this April; would you advise keeping

them for mating with the same hens next season, or do you advise selling

each year and getting fresh stock?

The young males will be all right to mate with the same hens next season

- that is, if they come through the molt with vigor. They will be just

two years old and at their best. The molt is the test for both, hens and

cocks. If they show no signs of ailing or weakness during that period,

it is proof of the proper stamina and vigor.
