I'm asking this just out of curiosity, as it's too late to do anything. A friend of mine sold about 17 of her chickens (mostly roosters with a few hens) to a man for $80. He said he lives out in the country, and the chickens just free range on his land. Some where full size roosters, some were bantam. One rooster had a bad leg, and when she asked if he wanted that one too, he said sure. Some roosters were a pure bred, but most where a mix. There were a couple of hens in with the bunch too.
I just keep thinking about her chickens and wondering if they went to a cock fighting place, as bait or something. Why would someone pay for so many roosters? Or, am I overlooking something? Maybe he's planning to eat them, which while sad, hopefully he kills them quickly. But, what about the bantams, and especially the bantam with the hurt foot?
Anyway, do people still fight chickens? Is that something to watch out for when re-homing roosters? Is there some other reason someone buys so many varied roosters?
I'm a softy, so I just keep thinking about her sweet roos! I really hope this man just likes having lots of chickens roam free on his land, and I hope he has a coop for them!
