As my chicks are growing up, I'm realizing that I have too many roosters, and I need to figure out which ones to get rid of. I'm keeping my birds for eggs/pets, and I don't plan on hatching babies (because I already have a list of different breeds I want for next year). They won't be free ranging, so having a roo to look after the girls really isn't a concern. With that in mind - I have the following birds: 2 SLW bantams (one rooster), 2 polish crested (both roosters), 5 BR (maybe a rooster in there), 7 BO (one rooster), 2 GLW, 2 EE, 3 SF, 1 partridge rock, and 2 silkies. I figure that I can probably do two roosters - hopefully The SLW rooster is a tough guy, and I'm worried that the older he gets he may get more aggressive. The older PC is more docile, and the other roosters are only about 5 weeks old, so their personalities haven't started to come out too much yet. Also, the SLW rooster has started to crow - the PC older roo does, a little, but he's still pretty pathetic sounding. Crowing is a little bit of a concern, because I found out I'm living illegally right now. My neighbors all know I have chickens, and no one has complained yet - but I don't want to risk it with a noisy rooster. And I've got to worry about my kids, I don't want a rooster who scares/chases/attacks my kids. Any suggestions on who goes?
