I think that  it would be easy for you to trade with someone your  birds for some  other breed of good layers and meat ( AKA dual purpose chickens)    I know I would take those of your hands  in a flash. :)

We're trying to do some trading on them. They are real pretty birds and they haven't cause me any trouble. They lay a really small egg and it's not gonna get bigger, which was our whole reason for getting chickens but didn't do any kind of reading into the breeds before we got them. Lol. White and black roo does get up on the top of the shed and coop thought, but he stays in their fenced area. Only time I saw fighting was when we added the second trio but it was long enough to establish pecking order and haven't seen much since.
