Please take some good advice, for the life of your one hen. Please give both roosters away and get another hen for her. Roosters mate several times a day and they need at least 10-15 hens per rooster in order for his needs to be fulfilled without overworking and overstressing the hens. I can guarantee you right now she is one of the most miserable hens alive, simply because she is getting pounced upon over and over and over by two males when they aren't fighting for the right to mate her. She will soon have no feathers on her back or the back of her head and the stress of it all could very well wind up killing her.

You don't need a rooster to have eggs but you need that hen and she needs a companion, so it's best to get her another hen for that.

Next time, you should seriously do some research before getting involved in chicken keeping. Two roosters for one hen...I'm incredibly surprised she isn't dead yet. Roosters are very tough on hens, and you need to separate the hen from the roosters before they kill her, or buy about 13 more hens for the roosters.
