I have two beautiful roosters, a father (EE) and his son (EE/PR). They are both lovely roos, great temperaments, neither are aggressive towards me, the hens or my children or even complete strangers that come over. I am downsizing my roos and am not sure which one to keep. I'm NOT a breeder, I keep a roo or two around as flock protection, and for fertile eggs for hatching when I need some new hens. I DO change out my roo every few years, but since I just did that last year, I'm hoping to keep one of my two roos around instead of getting a new one this year. I do have an Americana that I'll be keeping as well, since he was given to me by a friend that can't have any roos at all. Just need to know: should I keep the father of quite a few of my hens, or his son, their half brother? ETA: I had no idea which forum to put this thread in, so I hope it's OK to post it here.
