    I am most concerned with temperament - have at least four roos in my latest batch and want to rehome at least two. None are crowing, none are acting out, all are scared to death of me [​IMG]. So based on your experience, which two would you guess would be the least 'rowdy' when they mature? Of course, no one can know for sure, but fun to guess. Which two would you keep? None of these are SQ or even close, so I am not picking based on attractiveness (although the EE's are going to be gorgeous, I think!)..

    All are a bit over 11 weeks and are assumed to be boys until proven otherwise. My barn lighting makes the combs look lighter than they really are!

    What think you? Which should I keep? Or none? [​IMG]
