I kind of felt guilty sending my six spare cockerels to the freezer this week. One of them had previoulsy been picked for my 2013 breeder (out of about 18 I kept this year) before bringing in a cream colored cockerel. I would have liked to rehome him and a younger cockerel too that was looking like he would turn out even better then his older half brother. The younger cockerel weighed in at 5 lbs at 6 month old with great angles and shape, straight combs and tiny crest. I just couldn't talk any breeders into taking any gold colored cockerels this year and didn't have space to keep them myself since I was keeping both of my foundation roosters.
