Hello Doc Ted,
How important is stag hardening? This is the first year that i will be breeding for myself since i was a kid. I had planned to harvest stags and place them directly into 3'x3'x3' scratch pens, then move to flypens prior to dubbing. Had not planned to cord any roosters at all, just to alternate flypens(3.5'W x 6'L x 6'H) on a regular basis. Is this wrong? Is it better to have roosters corded vs in flypens? Thank you Doc and I appreciate your patience. God Bless.
