Three Rooster have turned up. Look like Araucana Brothers? Nice Crests. Not sure what to do with them. My 4 chooks don't seem bothered and the kids have named them. I do have a firearms licience.

They are Araucana crosses . Probably somebody dumped them close to your house and they just followed your hens. Are you able to keep roosters where you are ?
Maybe you can keep one and move the others on ?

You could try the NoCrow Collar ! It takes a little while to adjust then but works great ! ;)

They are only crossbreds. I suggest eating them
