    I need to get rid of a LOT of roos, unfortunately no one wants them. They are mostly from nice lines etc but I just can't afford to feed all the *extras* anymore. I am near Portland. Does anyone know of any auctions I can unload these boys? I feel bad because I have had some so long, but I just can't afford the feed bill, I am going through 100lb a week and only have 4 chickens laying right now [​IMG] . With the weather getting warmer they are starting to fight more......
    wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this [​IMG]

    I'm outside of Brunswick and am looking for a sweet roo to protect 13 girls. My male guinea passed away and he had been doing the job until a month ago. I have a neighbor who goes to some swaps in the area during the summer and fall but I don't know where they are. I have not heard good things about Craigs List and birds from vets. I would want to see what I'm getting in person.
