You can buy 'roosters only' from hatcheries, from Craigs List and from folks here on BYC in the buy-sell-trade section.

Second that!  Definitely check out your Craigs List.  I started out with 6 sexed pullets from a hatchery.  Loved them, name them and bonded with them.  Then, about 4-5 months into my chicken project, my 2 SLW "pullets" started crowing like mad during a thunderstorm.  Put them on Craigslist the next day and they were gone.  I see roosters on Craigslist for sale all the time, and occasionally for free.  Search the ads, and even put one out there stating that you are looking for roosters.  You'll get replies!  wink.png

I would NEVER buy off Craigs list, the tractor store, the newspaper...would stick to well known hatcheries, or BYC breeders...too many sick birds, or carriiers of disease, on Craigs list and the other places!!!!

You can also check your local animal shelters. This time of year there are lots of homeless roosters from people who got "pullet" chicks in the spring only to wind up with a roo.

I think at the opening ceremonies, during the parade of nations, every athlete should carry their nation's flag, and a rainbow flag. They should march with duct tape over their mouths, and No H8 written on their cheeks. ‪#‎Olympics‬‪#‎Sochi‬‪#‎NoH8‬‪#‎ToRussiaWithLove‬,‪#‎Equality‬‪#‎IOC‬‪#‎LoveIsLove
