We are fairly new to chickens, and have ended up with two roosters. I'm not really sure if we want ANY roosters to begin with, I hadn't intended on getting any but didn't realize how difficult it is to tell. Anyhow - we picked up a box of 5 mixed birds at the auction a few months back (I had actually posted here wondering what kind they are/gender). Two are definitely roosters, and are now "grown up". I understand that two roosters is too many for 5 hens. So my question is - which one would you keep? Should we even bother keeping either? The dominant white/speckled one is suddenly being very aggressive and attacking our (previously dominant) sweet old hen. There had been some suggestion in my original post that this guy might be a golden cuckoo maran. I have a hard time believing that one would show up in a mixed box at the auction, but wanted to post an updated picture here to glean any more speculation/thoughts. If he is something rare then I'd like to keep him seeing as he is good with all the other birds. thanks! Rooster #1 - Dominant. Feet are grey with a pinkish tinge. Rooster #2 - doesn't crow but looks like a roo even in my very limited experience.
