    so I just found out that my black australorp chick is a rooster, even though the place I got them said they were all females. I was wondering if anybody wanted a rooster or has any idea what to do with him.

    Post an ad on Craigslist. We eat most of are cockerels and found out my family isn't a fan of one year old stew birds. Put a ad for free cockbird, rooster and stated best way to cook it and also the breed/temperament if anyone wanted to keep. The person that wanted to keep him didn't show and a Chinese family came by to pick up my last extra and told me he'd take any old roosters I had. Medicine of viral males he was after and they turn the whole thing to broth. I kept his number and will unload all not eaten by fall and not being used for breeding. Win, win situation for him and me.
