    Welcome to BYC! All are looking like cockerels, unfortunately.

    thanks she has a bigger comb than my third red, basically right between. Waiting and watching. Is two roosters too much loving for 4 hens and/or will the two roosters fight? I have lots to learn[​IMG]

    It is possible for the roosters to establish who is more dominant and 2 roosters might be too much most people prefer for 1 rooster to have at most 12 hens
