    I didn't intentionaly order mine, they came as part of the Rare Breed Special. Mine are all really docile and I haven't had any issues with fights. The only problem I've had is the fact that they like pick feathers off other chickens. They are good layers and I even had one go broody for a short period of time.

    Next spring I'm going to order some more from the Rare Special along with some more from the Surprise Special. I like the diversity of both assortments.

    You can sell them on Craigslist. I've had good look finding excess roosters new homes that way.
