    Both roosters. First one looks to be a crossbred.

    Are you sure he's a roo??? :( Was told the silkie was a hen [​IMG][​IMG] do I need to get rid of one rooster? I have 1 RIR hen (lays daily), 2 austolourp hens (not laying yet), 1 silkie hen (hasn't laid in almost a month [​IMG]), 1 golden laced polish hen (lays almost daily) 1 Cochin hen (not laying yet about 7 months old), 1 light Sussex (not laying yet), 1 ameracauna (not laying yet), 1 black star (not laying yet)... they are all old enough to lay, just most haven't started yet. I also have 10guinea fowl. (6 females 4males.) I think I named all my hens.

    With 9 hens between them they should get along ok if there is enough space they can stay away from each other. I'd wait and see if the get along, unless you just want one rooster.

    Ok I think they have enough space. They have a 50'X10' run plus a 4'X8'X8' house on the side of it. So maybe they will be ok! Thanks again!
