    Have you tried Craig's List in your area or the local newspaper.

    I just found new homes for 12 of mine this past week. I posted an ad on Craigslist saying that they needed to be gone ASAP and listed the breeds. I included information that they've been raised as pets and their age. I "sold" the first few for the cost of raising them (for me it was $7.00 a piece).

    I sold a few and after a week passed, I put another ad up saying they needed homes by Monday as they would be gone either way. I had someone come by yesterday and get the rest (7). I gave those to him for free. He has several pastured acres and didn't mind giving them a home to free-range on.

    Just a couple of ideas that worked for me! Good luck - I know how you feel!
