Can 2 rooster be in same coop

Why do you need to get rid of both of them? You could probably keep one of them - the 10:1 hen to rooster ratio is more for the big breeders - it seems to be close to "ideal" for fertility. If it were my flock, I'd pick the rooster I like best and get rid of the other. Then I would watch the hens. If they seem stressed, are losing feathers, or not laying well, I'd rethink if I wanted to keep the rooster or not. I think it helps if they can free range and have plenty of space to wander around or get away from the rooster.
