    I picked out three chicks to start my backyard flock, and it seems that two of the three are turning into roosters. My immediate thoughts to follow were that I'm going to have to find homes for one, or both birds because I am under the impression that keeping two roosters is asking for trouble (fights and such). Is that true? Should I only have one rooster in a small flock? I was thinking of getting one or two more chicks (sexed pullets this time, I don't want any surprise roosters) But I'm having such a difficult time just thinking of getting 'rid' of them. And I certainly have too soft of a heart to eat them.

    What should I do?
    Where is a good place to find homes for them? I don't want them to go to a bad home.

    sometimes if they are raised together you wont have any trouble I know people who have lots of roosters together it just depend on there temperament I would just wait and see they may get along just fine
