Hi all, So here is my BIG dilema....I made the foolish mistake of taking the chance and buying some straight run chicks back in May most of them were 5 weeks old at the time. Of course they have since grown and I am now figuring out who's who and what's what. They are about 13 weeks now. It seems I have ended up with 6 roosters to 5 hens. I now need to make the difficult decision as to who will stay and who will go. Now to complicate things my 5 year old son has his favorites which include three of the roosters. I have to decide what to do. Would it be possible for two bantam roo to live harmoniously with 5 standard hens? I will post pictures. We are all partial to these three roos because as of right now they are still friendly manageable and petable. Will they remain that way over time or will the hormones just kick in? The safety of my two small children are paramount to all decisions. I have a 2 1/2 year old and a five year old. I didn't really want a rooster initially but these ones right now are so nice so I'm considering it. Please chime in with your thoughts!Could we keep the two bantams together or just pick the one standard barred cochin to stay if any? If I don't keep a roo with one of the hen take the roos place and become a mean girl? These chickens current live in a 6 feet x 10 feet coop with an attached 9x11 by 7 foot tall totally enclosed run. They will not be able to free range. Not interested in fertile eggs it doesn't matter. The 5 hens will consist of an amberlink, golden comet, two easter eggers and a barred rock.The local SPCA near me has a poultry program and I have already contacted them and they will be able to take any or all of my roosters for potential rehoming. I am thankful for that! Otherwise I don't know how I would potentially rehome six roos as I know most people have trouble rehoming just one.Should I just cut my losses now and bring them all down there? bantam polish/silkie cross (alpha roo right now takes care of things with a cluck only no physicallity necessary to get point across) He clucks and the others move. bantam salmon faverolle cross ? nice bird (small) as well my son's favorite right now anyways... standard barred cochin my favorite but would he be to big for the hens eventually? BTW: This is my first flock...yikes...what have I done? Since this picture they have an appropriate ramp for coop. They love mash!
