    Oh my! I have no idea what we will do with them. I have listed them (4 of them) on Craig's List, haven't heard from anyone yet) and I have listed them on a local classifieds too. Our boys are NOT getting along. I would hate to have to cull them, but that my have to happen even before they are old enough to be freezer birds.

    What breed(s) are they?

    CraigsList is certainly an option.

    I'd look into a poultry processing class with the local extension. It's not hard to process your own roosters, and they taste way better than what you get at the store, plus you know what went into to them and how fantastic of a life they had.
