    I have too many roosters at the moment since I let a broody hen sit on eggs last summer. The father is our large Buff Orpington and the eggs came from our Aracana hen (blue eggs). Now I have 2 extra handsome roosters and would like to find good homes for them in eastern Mass. I only have 7 hens at the moment so too many roosters are not good for them!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

    So glad you could join our community!

    You might check out our Buy Sell and Trade section here in BYC in hopes of finding them good homes. Even feed store bulletin boards sometimes are looking for birds.

    Good luck and welcome to our roost! :)

    Welcome to BYC. Good luck in 'relocating' the excess roosters.

    Welcome to BYC! Best wishes on relocating the extra roos. I currently have a 3:5 ratio but plan on using tie outs for the boys if I observe excessive fighting or harmful breeding. My wife will not permit me to cull so that is the best compromise I could come up with.
