    Greetings! I'm very new to raising poultry and we purchased a "variety pack" of dual-purpose chicks in April. They're coming along nicely. Last week, I made a 4 hour round trip to pick up an Americauna rooster that is just a little older than our "girls". All is well.... He's a gentle bird and the girls like him. Tonight, a FB friend ended up with what appear to be 2 young Red Junglefowl that someone didn't want and dropped off. She MUST rehome them. I am willing to take them as long as they won't attack my flock, but if they are going to be unpleasant, then I don't I want them. Can anyone advise me, please? Thanks so much!!!

    I would be concerned that they might be black breasted red gamefowl. Do you really need 3 roosters in your flock?
