    Why isn't the swap listed on their site?
    I have a SLW cockerel that I'd love to swap for a pullet.
    Can I do that there? I am a newbie. Only started "chickening" this Spring.
    DO I need to bring any kind of paperwork for him as well?
    Thanks!

    Awesome! So, how does this work? I have a 5 month old cockerel (SLW) and I'd love to swap him for a pullet. A Sultan or Polish would be great! So, do I just approach those who have other chickens and ask....or what? I am new to all of this.
    I should probably make a sign to put on his crate, right? Saying how old and the breed and so on. What else? This seems like so much fun!
