I should probably not have a roo around here in the city at all, but I have 2/3 of an acre and a school behind me. My neighbors on both sides encourage a rooster .... so other neighbors will not be very close. I'm going to give it a try for a while to keep one of the two... am so disappointed both are males . Logistically, I think I will be down to 6-7 hens and 2 roos soon. They are all young ... going on 13 weeks right now. They cannot free range, I have two hawks that land EVERY day right outside the coop/run and watch the chickens. grrrrrr Anyway, from what I've read 2 roosters with 7 hens would be a high ratio. Also, I am afraid their crowing would feed off each other (neither has crowed yet). And for now, they are both docile as can be, and love to sit on my lap for a nap. But I know this will likely change. But assuming they are both remain good-natured, What other factors should I consider? Gosh both are such great chickens thus far! The hens will be 2 RIRs, 1 white cochin, 2 silkies (or 1), and 2 EEs. The roos will be a Houdan and what I have been told is a Dark Brahma. I think about having to get rid of one of them ALL THE TIME .... so how do I decide which to re-home and which to try and keep??
