    When i ordered my chickens in the mail from Ideal Poultry, they added males for warmth. I decided to keep the males, as I believe the killing of these young chickens is unethical and raise them to sell.

    I had areound seven males I recieved, but when they were two weeks old an animal got into the brooder and killed half of the chicks I have there. I currently have four males left, does anyone know what breed they would possible be?

    Also, what are some good ways of getting rid of them if I'm unable to sell them and they aren't good for meat?

    It seems as if half of the chickens I have are turning out to be roosters! [​IMG]

    (Also... sorry for the blurry photos. My chickens are always finicky when it's raining!)
