    It has recently been confirmed that I have two roos. Disappointing since I bought my BR from a pullet run. http://photobucket.com/slatpics I'm wondering will I have to split these guys up down the road or will they get along ok since they have been raised together?

    They should get along ok because they were raised together. My two EE roosters are inseparable. Best thing is to just wait and see.

    How many hens do you have? If there's not enough to go around, they'll probably fight.

    I only have one hen at the moment. I was hoping for 3. They are in different runs, but are next to each other.

    [​IMG] They may or may not get a long. It depends upon the individual roosters. Guaranteed 2 roosters and 1 hen will not work. They will stress her and probably cause physical damage to her through gang breeding.
