    I got these Roosters from TSC from the pullets bin but of course all three turned out to be roosters. There starting to show signs of aggressiveness towards each other and we need to get rid of two of them. One of them were keeping but the other two were getting rid of. Anyways, I was wondering what breed they are so that we can get rid of them.

    Here they are:

    Are they crowing?

    I don't see saddle feathers or any real indication they are cockerels other than comb size and color. How old are they?

    About 6-7 weeks. I heard one of them crow but I'm not sure which one it was and they act like roosters. They try to fight sometimes(but don't injure each other.Thats one reason we need to get rid of them soon) and all three are mean except for the one were keeping hes nicer than the others and acts more protective.

    Oh, and thanks to everyone that replied!

    Well, they aren't roosters yet, they are still cockerels until they are a year old, and these are both Delawares. Dels are a lovely breed and the boys are usually pretty well behaved.
    Good luck if you can keep them. If you wish, they will be plenty big enough for dinner birds.
