    We have recently discovered that one of our babies is a rooster :/ I live in Colorado. Does anyone have any idea how to go about selling him? Is it easy to do? New to raising chickens but am so in love! Any advice would help!

    You could try to post it in the buy~sell~trade forum. I don't know how it works, but it's there for some reason, I guess. Also, do you have any farms nearby?

    The easiest way to place them is usually though Craigslist, or local agricultural papers. Also fliers at try any farm stores or places that sell chicken feed, and ask at your vet office. Local 4-H or FFA groups might be something to try also, frizzles are popular as pets and as 4-H birds so try checking with the local 4-H group extension office if anybody is looking for project birds. Make sure you ask or specify that you are looking for a pet home unless you don't mind him being processed, since most roos do go for meat.

    Being a frizzle, however, it's likely he'll be taken in quite quickly!
