    Hi all,
    I am new to chickens and I need some help. Of the first batch of 6 chicks I got (sold to me as pullets), 3 of them are cockrels hatched in May that I need to find new homes for. Two of them are Easter Eggers and one is a light Brahma. One of the EEs has a very small comb, perhaps the beginning of a beard, a short tail, green legs, and a great personality. The other EE might have some leghorn in him. The light brahma is beautiful with great coloring and feathery feet. All three are not showing aggression at all. I would love to find them new homes that do not include a stew pot in the near future. Can anyone help?
    Thank you!

    I am in southeast michigan.

    You know, I never thought about shipping. I am a total newbie to this and I don't know how to ship them or if they would survive. If anyone has info on doing this, I am open to suggestions.

    I just checked the USPS site to see about shipping. It would probably cost about $40 to ship to Colorado. The bird would be free but the new owner would be responsible for shipping costs. I don't think the Postal Service guarantees "live" delivery. They claim the delivery date is next day as long as the bird is shipped early in the week and there are no holidays.

    Can I ask why you are needing to find these Chickens new homes?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, I am unable to keep roosters. We don't have any ordinance against owning chickens but I know my neighbors would not be happy if I had one rooster let alone three! Aside for that, I plan on having only 6 hens and that just isn't enough to keep 3 roosters happy. I would rather try to place them in new homes than keep them isolated and unhappy.
