    We are on week two of chickens -- we received 8 from a friend of ours and now believe that 2 of them are roosters. Is it okay to have two roosters in the flock? Or do we need to start thinking about getting rid of one? Thanks!!!!!

    With only 6 hens you would definitely need to get rid of one of them. If they are only a couple weeks old you have a while to find them homes
