    My neighbor asked my husband if he could get a couple of chickens to put in our coop. My husband cant say no, so the guy went and got two. The place he got them from didnt know their ages or gender. I dont want any roosters, so can someone help me out?

    You have two cockerels. I think the spotted one is a Speckled Sussex, maybe? I can't tell on the dark one? Looks a little rhode island red to me.

    Good Luck!

    Dang it. I dont know what to do now. I have eight hens, and now two roosters. Roosters scare me a little. I worry about my kids around them. Should I give them a shot or tell my neighbor to get rid of them?

    Since the two new ones don't really belong to you, I would explain to your neighbor that while you don't mind a couple of spare chickens, your flock cannot handle more than one rooster and you really don't want roosters at all....let the neighbor rehome the animals.

    I have a bunch of roos and they are great with my kids. I have never had a problem but if really dont want to have roos, i would re-home them.
