    hi all!
    Just figured/ found out that two of my ladies are actually boys. I have 8 girls and think that's too few to have two roos. They are only about 4 months old and worried that they will start fighting once they get older. so, what are good qualities that I should look for in the one I am going to keep? One already seems to be protective and makes sure everyone gets in at night. Neither are aggressive, but is it too early for them to be showing sings of aggression? By what should they be separated? When is too early to eat one? They are both rather large, getting bigger than my 2 year old RIRs.
    Thanks for any help in this hard decision I have to make!

    If they have grown up together they will be fine! they will associate their domanance quickly though and you will notice one of them getting bigger=)
