They were hatched this past April. The definite brown rooster one is more dominant of the two. The silver one crows some but not as much or as loud as he does. It’s just the 2 of them, but I want to introduce younger hens. Also where is the rehoming forum?
It’s so hard to find a home for Roos!!!!!

Both roosters. His crowing should have been an indicator lol
Yes! But I was told she could mimick him since it’s just the two of them. She is not as loud or doesn’t crow like he does. This is from a feed store owner, around chickens all the time. It’s confusing. Jill is smaller, no wattle or big cone, but feathers look like a Roo. Ugh

I was so hopeful that my suspicions were wrong. We have 3 young hens to introduce. The big cone one is the alpha of the two. If I keep the rose cone one, maybe he will be louder by himself with hens? I need to rehome one of the ASAP. I don’t how the dynamics with change with rooster and hens together. They are mellow. Rose cone one so mellow, thinking’s he’s a hen. The big one will chase my son sometimes coming out of the coop.

Definitely keep the quieter cockerel. You don’t want aggressive males, especially around young people.

Definitely both cockerels there!

Personally I'd keep the quieter more mellow male in your future flock :)

Keep in mind the "quiet" mellow one may change his behavior once the more dominant bird is gone.

As far as the dominant bird, he needs to be broken of his bad habits ASAP or rehomed/culled at once, if he's chasing your son around.
