I am positive this is a Roo he's 8 weeks and 3 days and crows pathetically. I think he's a blue marans?

here is another I think is a blue marans and also a Roo?

here are the two that I think are Roo's but there is a third in the picture above that looks exactly like these two only lighter in color.

here is a blue splash marans that I think is a pullet?

here is what I think is an Ameraucana pullet?

and the last I think is a Ameraucana pullet?


I wanted one Roo not 3 so what do I do with the other two? can they live together?
or should I plan to separate them until I can find new homes? which one would you keep?


Thank you!

Looks like you are correct on your guesses to me.

Wished we could all get exactly what we wanted.

I'd watch them for awhile yet and decide later, and choose the most manly one that fit closest to what I want to breed.​

ok, I will continue to watch them then decide who's the keeper. at what age will I have to worry about them fighting?
should I separate them let them grow to table size? should we cull and eat the other two? lol I've never done it before:(
thanks for the advise:)

I have a lot of roosters that have grown up in the flock and except for some squabbling to get the pecking order straightened out, I haven't really had any bad fighting. I do tend to separate certain individuals if they are too hard on the hens though
