First and foremost; I would like to say that we have recently retired and are newbie chicken keepers :D And very happy about it!On June 3rd 2016 we purchased out first dozen of HENS. Specifically for egg layers for us to eat. WELL! who knew ; we had our first ' Cocka-doodle-doooo !!! this morning :D. I believe one of our Amberlinks is a rooster lol. Also I am not sure but we believe one of our Black Australorps is also a roo. hahaha. All surprise to us. We purchased 12 sexed hens; but oops. lol. Anyway; We have a very nice coop and pen for our birds and would like any advice on what NOW to expect and how to care for our 'boys' haha. Thank you all so much in advance for any productive and helpful advice or comments :) We love this site for education and fun !

Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. As your potential boys mature, they may get along well, since they have been raised together or it could go belly-up. You may wish to consider removing one from your flock if they begin to fight seriously.

All the best

Thank you all for your wonderful welcomes :D I am having difficulty posting pictures from my PC, as well as trying to get a profile picture posted ! I'm working on it ahaha. Update though: Maybe our BA is not a rooster, but a large hen close to laying age :) But she really did try to crow !! hahaha. Thank you all again for your expertise as well as your kindness.
