    Sell them for whatever the market in your area will tolerate. Unfortunately, cockerels are a dime a dozen and most people aren't looking to buy them for breeding or showing. Which means most of the people who are going to be interested in your extra cockerels are looking to grow them out for eating. Purebred Ameraucana cockerels are only worth more than your average barnyard mix if you have someone looking to buy them for breeding or showing, and even then that depends on how much the buyer knows and what lines your birds come from. For growing out, you're not going to get any more for them than you would for any other kind of cockerel.

    If they are breeder birds and they are show quality, take them to a show and sell them from there.

    You won't get a huge price for them, but you should be able to sell them.

    If they are actually Easter Eggers, you might have to give them away to someone who plans to eat them, but if they are SOP birds, someone will buy them.
