    I have 4 roosters, two bantam and two standard.
    The two standards have began to fight over girls, they are also really big and very mean. I'm considering sending them to the boiler.
    What do I do about my bantams though?
    They are sultans, about 19 weeks old, and so far live in peace. Actually, when one crows, the other follows. Very cute.

    I have 16 girls, would two roosters be alright??

    the roo's will establish a "pecking order" just like your hens, if the lowest challenges it,, he will be "taught a lesson". i've had roosters that have always gotten along, but some just dont.and if your 2 breeds are togather, no matter what 1 will be king.
