    I'm raising two chicks at the moment, an australorp and a white leghorn
    I'm not sure of their sexes but if they both turn out to be roosters is it safe to have them living in the same cage, if they have been raised together?
    And if not, is it safe to have them living in the same yard, how big would the area need to be for them to live happily together and would they need to have separate sheltered/sleeping areas
    Also do if they turn out to be roosters will they be less friendly or more violent towards me, and if so is there any way I can raise them to make them as friendly as possible
    I've grown quite attached to them and I'm not super excited about the idea of having to give them away

    They should be fine, especially if they are raise together since they are chicks.
