Ok. I have 2 roosters (both barred rocks) and can only keep one. Technically I believe they are "cockerels". They are not full grown and haven't mated yet. I need help choosing which one to keep. I want one that will protect my hens (not that the situation would ever arise) and still treat me well. From your experience which one would be better. Here are their qualities: Rooster#1: -more dominant -flighty, always runs from me -feathers are slightly messy Rooster#2: -less dominant -runs from me but will still eat out of my hand and come near me -well groomed bird I know it's not a lot but I guess it boils down to this: if I keep the nicer one, will he eventually become meaner like the dominant one or stay nice? and if he does stay nice, will he still protect the hens (most of which are older than him but I'm guessing when he's grown and mature he'll be in charge). Please help me. Thank you!
