We just purchased 6 Bantam cochins, it was an all or nothing sort of deal with the owner. But I'm concerned about how long they'll all be okay together. They're almost five months old. She said they're all pretty docile and would be fine but I've been reading a lot to the contrary. Thanks for your help!

Even if the roosters continue to get along (not very likely), they will be overbreeding the hens. Can you rehome two of the roosters?

I'm trying :( that seems to be pretty hard. I see a lot of posts on local trade/buy/sells for roosters... Maybe that's why the seller insisted we take them all. Thanks for your help.
