    Different breeds of chickens will mate and produce healthy crossbred chicks - that won't be problem. Two roosters mating your two hens may stress and potentially injure the hens.

    Thank you! I know I just have that 2:2 ration of hens and roosters..... there all really sweet if that changes anything? They've all grown up together. What if I just added one hen? Still to many roosters and not enough hens? I just don't have the room for too many more hens.... I don't want them to get hurt or overly stressed though? What do you recommend I do? Thanks again!
