Oh my goodness, how do you keep that many roosters? Do they get along? Bartering for feed, that sounds like a great idea. I just hatched chicks two weeks ago from an incubator we bought online. I sold 20 of them to a lady today. No, we didn't put him in the freezer. Probably should have but for two days I was on crutches from the spurring and my husband wouldn't have wanted to it. We live in a very small town so not many people here have chickens. I haven't had any problem selling eggs. There's been times my eggs were sold before they were even laid.
