Roostros are an uncommon chicken spawned from nests, maturing chicks, crates, and may be offered as a reward on the Range Exchange.

Roostros are necessary for hens to begin producing eggs which immediately hatch into chicks. This process is more efficient in a coop, especially when upgraded. They have a chance to turn into Elder Roostros after siring a chickadoo.

Slimepedia Entry

About:
Roostros are the alpha birds on the Far, Far Range and half of the equation required to breed chickens on the ranch. However, roostros are rarer than any hen making them a great find any time one is discovered.

To acquire a roostro, either find one out on the range or breed them on the ranch. Any type of chickadoo has a small chance of growing into a roostro. Some ranchers believe that these odds increase if you greet the Rooster King's crow at sunrise with an enthusiastic 'good morning!

On the Ranch:
All hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.

Tips

  • Due to their rarity, it is not recommended to feed Roosters to Hunter Slimes. Instead, convert Hunter Slimes to a Largo with a favored Fruit or Veg that is easier to grow instead.
  • Although Roostros spawn occasionally from Chickadoos, a Roostro is not guaranteed to produce another Roostro in its "lifetime", so you should always keep some spare in a Silo.
  • It's recommended that you have at least 2-3 Roostros in your Coops. Since if they become old, the hens will stop making eggs, but having many reduces this chance since you only need at least one Roostro.
    • Having too many Roostros count towards the limit that coops can handle, so having few Roostros makes it so that you can maximize your "hen production".
