    I've been raising chickens for several years. It's been mostly hit and miss. I've had a variety of breeds but 2 years ago bought Buff Brahman, Gold-laced Wyandotttes, Partridge Wyandottes and Mille Fleur D'uccle bantam chicks. I still have some of those. However I have 9 hens and 7 roosters which is way too many roosters. They're just so pretty I hate to kill them for the stew pot. My chickens free-range during the day and I currently have 3 hens broodying. But nothing has hatched this year. I don't know if they give up and leave - I haven't kept track very well. So I bought a used incubator yesterday and I'm going to try to get more serious about hatching. What do other people do with the excess roosters?

    Thanks for the welcome to the group.
