    They are 8 week old welsummer and an Easter egger. I'm afraid they are both roosters.
    Thank you!

    Thank you for confirming this for me! I'm new to chickens and I recently suspected the Easter egger. Do you think it's remotely possible to keep them both? I only have 13 hems. May be wishful thinking. We have 5 acres and they are free ranging a lot of the day and evening. I appreciate any thoughts. They have been raised together since I ordered them from a hatchery.
