Wow! My fears exactly. Thanks for helping me out! Now what do I do with all of those roosters?!! We aren't hardcore enough to eat them though our farmer friends would laugh at us for that. We are so new to this and hatching was traumatic enough !!

I take my excess cockerels to poultry auctions where aparently about half go as pets.

I wonder if they'd take non breed specific birds ... We're not sure what we have as they were a mixed bag gift as eggs from our neighbor. Or maybe we just need to do more research. . Thanks!
