    I am pretty sure I Have to roos here. What do you think? Not sue it is good to have 2 roos that different in size with just 4 other chickens.

    I'd say the frizzle is a cockrel, and I think the other one probably is too...but could you show a picture of him/her more straight on to be sure?
    And you are correct. Two Roos to 4 hens would be a terrible idea. Really, 4 hens isn't enough for one roo, they would end up overbred and stressed. The average recommended ratio is 10 to 1.

    I agree that better pics would help, it would also help a ton to know how old these birds are.

    Thx for the reply. I tried to get better pics, they are all with my phone so it's hard to get good ones. My babies are 8 weeks old and here are more pics of the ones I think may be Cockrells. Man, I really will hate rehoming them. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
