    Hi, I have two chickens that I got a few days after mother's day this year. I have never owned chickens before and don't know a whole lot about them. We got them from a friend at church and didn't know if they were male or female. We were told to just wait and if they grew spurs then they were roosters. well it's been a couple months now and the one we initially started calling "he" has crowed a few times so we believe he is a rooster. the other is a little smaller and a different color and just makes a goose/duck sound all the time. Here some pictures of them

    Red one is a roo and the other one, I dont know because it is not a good pic, need it to stand up and give us a side view of the body so we can tell what exactly it is.

    if they are both roosters does this mean I can't keep them? I've also noticed that they jump around and puff up at each other sometimes but when they go to sleep they cuddle up next to each other with one's neck on top of the other's.
