    Next question since I am pretty sure this is a rooster, and it explains a lot of very pushy behavior. How do you go about getting rid of a 10 week old rooster???

    Second bird is probably a rooster, but we need a better profile pic to confirm.

    I don't have much luck getting rid of roosters for the most part. I use Craigslist as my advertising, and Facebook sometimes. Mostly I just butcher mine, but then I'm prepared for that from the start because I hatch out a lot of chicks.
