    I have 5 chickens about 3 months old and have 3 roosters. I am going to add more hens till I get to about 10. I have a home for one rooster, but do you think that I could have the 2 others live without killing each other? They seem to get along ok now and they are even in a really small temporary coop. Thanks for your input!

    Ive never had problems with multiple roosters. Especially when they were raised together. They all found thier job in the flock.

    My 2 boys (before a %^& coon had a buffet in my coop) had distinctive jobs. Big Boy was boss who watched and lead the flock around, Ducky was in charge of the coop. He escorted the girls to and from the coop to lay thier eggs.
