The average ratio of hens to roosters is 60:40. Or, for every 60 hens laid, 40 roosters are laid.

Yes they will.
A roosters place is in the chicken coop along with his hens. Wherever the hens go, so should the rooster.
Roosters tend to have larger combs, wattles and fancy tails. They crow, hens chirp. Hens tend to be smaller and duller, roosters are bright and cheerful. Hens lay eggs, roosters don't.
Better to say 4 roosters is too many for 4 roosters. The 6 hens can wait a bit and soon there will be one rooster a-go-go, one in the hereafter, one running away, and one squating on the ground. The hens could deal with 6 roosters, but the big boy a go-go won't stand for more than him with his flock. actually 1 rooster needs 5 hens to be satisfied other wise roosters will fight One rooster will service (fertilize the eggs of) up to 6 hens. If you have more than 6 hens, you will need another rooster. 4 roosters on 6 hens is not good. The roosters will fight and the hens will be exhausted running from all the roosters.
Roosters are male. It's the hens that lay the eggs.

The term is crows, not crock. It is the rooster's way of telling other roosters and hens that this is HIS territory, and that he will fight other roosters for his hens.
