I am in a bit of a pickle. My family and I started a new flock this spring with many different chicken breeds, and a few ducks and a turkey. =)
UNFORTUNATELY, 6 of these supposed 'hens' are crowing now. =( We would like to keep at least one, but POSSIBLY two of them.
What is the best way to go about finding the other four homes? I don't want them to go to someone who is going to use them for a chicken dinner, and I REALLY don't want them to go to some punk who is going to try and fight them.
I am in Western Washington...Anyone else from around here that knows a place these guys can go? I have an ad on craiglist, but no one is responding.
The roosters that we want to sell are as follows-
2 Frizzle Cochins- One red (about 5 months old) and one black (about 2 months old)
1 Cuckoo Maran (5 months old)
1 Rhode Island Red (2 months old)
They are all STUNNING birds. Especially the Cuckoo. I hate to let them go, but they will do nothing to terrorize my hens, and cause a ruckous with the neighbors.
