Hello! We just started raising chickens about 7 months ago. We got some adult buff orpingtons, 4 hens and a rooster. "Big Red" is shown as my avatar. We only get 2 eggs a day, not sure which hens are not laying. So we decided to get some babies about a month ago and I just love them!!! We got 2 americauna and 3 Rhode Island Reds. I'm guessing that one of the reds is a male, but not for sure. He is taller than the others and we nicknamed him "Curious" because ever since he was a baby he seems ultra curious about everything going on around him. He is growing his comb faster than the others and just seems different than them to me. I really hate to get rid of him, but if he is a male then we will have to find another home since we already have a rooster. I don't suppose there is any way to keep 2 roosters????? Anyways, I can't wait to get started on all the threads and chit chat about my beloved chicks!!

Hello and welcome to BYC!
If you have enough space you may get away with 2 roosters. One will be the leader though, and keep the youngster in his place.

from sunny Florida. Many of us do a lot of hatching so we have a lot of males. I just sold 37 males. I have 5 breeding males. Most of the time one will be the alpha. They will decide. I have had to separate males that wanted to fight all of the time but for the most part they work out their pecking order.
