    Hey all...I am going to try to post this one more time in hopes I can find a home for at least a few of these guys so they don't have to go to the livestock auction on Mon. They are all FREE, prefer pick-up only in SW PA (about an hour south of Pittsburgh). I have several bantam cochin cockerels, about 12 weeks old (approx.), several EE roos (last year's hatch and a 2 y.o.). The cochins look like they are going to be pretty nice, heavy leg feathering, nice rumps. Two are white (one may end up being a frizzle???) and the other is a splash. The EE are orange/black, grey/reddish/cream. None are aggressive to people. I just have too many and my hens are getting beat up. Thanks, Leah

    Hey Rider...I imagine shipping would be pretty expensive, especially if you had to buy a box. These guys are fully grown and I would guess that they weigh maybe 5-6 pounds or so?? So I would think shipping would be around 30.00/40.00??? I have never shipped birds before and unless you already have a bio-box that you could ship me, I think it would probably be too expensive to be practical. You would probably be looking at 50-60 dollars with the box and everything. Where are you located??

    Hey Rider...Have you looked into prices on boxes? You would need a "bio-box" to ship and I would imagine it would have to be express mail...so it would wind up being probably at least 50 dollars....
