    What should I do? I was originally going to butcher them, but they're such a rare breed I feel guilty. They were May babies (so they aren't chicks or anything), and I have 3 males and 2 females. I want to keep one male.

    WWYD? Could I sell them? Are they worth anything?

    Where are you located? don't know about value.... there is a sale,buy section on this forum. You could put in ad for local only.

    I'm in NY. I was going to post in that forum, but wasn't sure if there would be interest anyway.... kind of wanted to get an "expert" opinion, KWIM? I'm kinda new to this!

    Try selling them on Craigslist. I see roosters for sale all the time in our area. They go for around $5 to $10 each.
