    I hatched some Welsummer eggs this Spring and ended up w/ 5 roos. I am only going to keep 2 of them. How do all of you decide which rooster(s) to keep when you have multiples?

    You could consider the quality of egg each one hatched from (if you know) and bloodlines' compatability if you are considering breeding. Then, just look at each individual compared to the breed standard and also consider disposition if there are some that are close in other ways.
