    I may have up to four roosters! I hate to re home them, but I feel like this is to many. They are only about 8-10 weeks old.

    1 porcelain d'uccle
    1 buff orpington
    1 EE
    1 Maran

    If anyone in the central PA area is interested in them please let me know.

    Depends on how many hens you have and the amount of space they have.

    I know that is way to many, I just have to decide which one to keep. I am thinking deff the maran for breeding purposes, but I love my little buffy.
