Please consider more hens, simplesurvival!
The rule of thumb is 10-12 hens per ONE rooster.
If you only are planning on keeping 4 hens with two roosters, the outcome will not be good for the roos or the hens. Your girls will be worn OUT and injured and your boys will fight, sometimes to the death!
I strongly urge you to get more hens.
