Some people will say that you don’t really need a rooster and I guess you don’t need them but why not enjoy this ritual, the beautiful sound of their crowing and their protective qualities if you can? And of course that they can fertilize the eggs if you would like to incubate and hatch your own chicks is a huge advantage!
