    They were packing peanuts but we have been unsure and you know that is what I thought, majority roosters.

    what do people usually do with them, I have feed them and they are all getting very aggressive/mean and I am tired of dealing with them. Should I add them to the menu and how much meat does one really have on it?

    Enid, OK!
    If you sell them, try to get any of the friendlier ones sold as pets. Eat the mean ones...
