ugh..the time has come, I knew it would someday. My chicks are growing up and now I have too many roosters/cockerels. I am already attached and am really nervous about selling them. It would be easier if people didn't associate roo's with stew. I am not gonna cry, ok maybe a little, secretly. sooooo worried. My dh says "put em on craigslist", so worried I am. I am worried that some toothless guy will come and start mentioning how good he will taste. just the thought, I know a lot of people eat their chickens, but not me. I love them like family and these are the 1st chicks ever born here. I ended up with 50/50 ratio. plus, some of the chicks "parents" died during a fox attack and it makes it harder to get rid of them. Especially since I am pretty sure that "pickles" (RIP) is the mama to the 1 roo and she was one of my favorites. K, but really, must get rid of the roos. I am gonna try to think positive, like maybe I will meet some real nice chicken loving folk this way. I would love to meet people in the area who enjoy chickens as much as I. I have met some nice people on CL, got some real nice wyandottes that way. Too bad that guy doesn't need any roo's, he had a real nice setup. Clean and nice lookin birds. oh boy, I will have to gather my strength to list them!
