    I bought these two roosters today from my local feed store. The store regularly gets hens in to sell and sometimes they have roosters, which they usually get donated by people who have had enough of rooster trouble. The store owner couldn't tell me the actual breed or cross of the rosters so if anyone can tell just from the heads enlighten me please. He did know the history. Apparently, the two roosters were part of a chick hatching program in schools called "Henny Penny" and these two were hand raised by a class of children so they are pretty tame. I haven't kept a rooster before (let alone two) so this should be an interesting learning experience. :)

    You know what? If I "didn't have hens"....I'd have a rooster for a pet. They are really cool! They are funny and I just am a pet-person! I don't raise chickens just for eggs. I like them.
