    I have 4 roosters and only 3 mature hens. I need to get rid of three mutts but i don't know what to do with them because I won't eat them and i can'ytf igure out how to contact anyone who may want them. Does anybody have any ideas?? I don't mind if they're eaten i just need them to go so my hens arn't so stressed. (they are young and just starting to grow in their pretty roosterly feathers)

    Thank You!

    Hope I posted in the right spot.

    Try posting them free on here (in the Buy ~ Sell ~ Auction section), flyers, newspaper ad, craiglist, freecycle, and just try to put the word out any way you can.

    Good suggestions. I gave some of mine to a neighbor that will butcher their own meat.
