    I'd want to keep the most beautiful and friendly one.

    However, I'd be slightly more inclined to keep the EE rooster because EE tend to be better egg layers, so the offspring would be better layers than the BCM offspring.

    BCM roosters are very gorgeous though, and you could work on getting olive eggers.

    Either way, you can't go wrong I think.
