    there's a place in RI that will slaughter your birds for about $3 each. Honestly, though, it's realtively easy to do if that type of stuff doesn't bother you.

    If you didn't want to do it yourself or keep the meet after processing, try putting them up on craigslist for slaughter or pet. Word of caution, though, there are so many free roosters that you might have a hard time selling them.

    I'm not sure about the processing age, though - you might want to watch their weight and process them when they get to a weight you're happy with.
