    Would you say these 3 are cockerels? And can 3 roosters live together?? I'm severely disappointed right now. Kids and I have bonded with them.

    How many other hens do you have and how much room? Or are you planning to keep them separate from the females?

    We are new to the chicken world. We bought a total of 5 thinking we were getting 4 pullets fir egg purposes. They are all together and our coop isn't huge. Fits 5-6. We didn't plan on separating. I was going to contact breeder to see if she'd exchange them.
