    I have a bunch of 10 or so week old Easter Eggers. I see what looks to be 6 roosters, out of all of them 1 seems to be bigger and is the only one crowing. Now if I cull him will another take his place? Or is he just an early bloomer? I am new to this rooster thing haha

    [​IMG] I can't say for certain how those boys you have will act. most roos will battle for the top position. You MIGHT help the choice by choosing one cock as your favorite, see that he gets top choice for treats, hens, etcetera.[​IMG] Maybe the other roosters and the hens will agree that HE is the boss!
