    I have 2 adult black females that im not sure of breed. 4 juvenile isa browns, 1 juvenile RIR rooster, 1 juvenile seabright rooster, and 3 babies that im not sure sex yet which are golden laced wyandotte, leghorn, and jersey giant. The juveniles are all the same age, but the seabright started crowing over a month ago and the RIR has not yet crowed. Ofcourse the 2 adults are on top of pecking order, and keep the rest on their feet all day. But after the two adults is the seabright roo. Is this because he has already started to crow? He definetly has control on the RIR. Does this mean that i will be able to keep them together, or is it likely that once tge RIR matures it will try to take pecking order and kill the seabright? Id like to keep both, but im worried that it wont work.
