Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.

Do you want to keep chickens? If you do, you will need to change your current population. 2 cockerels and 1 pullet will not work. 1 cockerel and 1 pullet MIGHT work but the cockerel would likely need to be separated from the pullet once his hormones kicked in as he could overbreed her.

It sounds like one of the cockerels is crowing. I'm sure roosters are not allowed where you are. If you just try to rehome him where you are, he will likely end up a bait bird for a cock fighting ring.

I would try contacting a local ASPCA or Humane Society and see if they have contacts to a farm rescue that will take them in. There are a lot of places upstate that will take these birds for you.

Good luck!

Yo can keep 2 males and 1 female no problem, Ive done it for years and never had problems if they are free ranged or if they are docile enough to get along in a coop you just have to watch their behavior.

You can keep the hen and get some sexed females from a hatchery in the spring if you dont want males.

As far as the crowing goes thats just part of all the fun!
