You sound responsible. I eat my culls(roosters,and pullets that I don't think will make good breeders, for whatever reason). If you don't want to breed because you don't want to eat them, come fall, someone always has a favorite pullet or hen that they don't want to eat so if you are willing to drive, you may be able to get it quite cheap!! AS far as roosters go, they are hard to give away and I take comfort knowing that while mine lived they didn't spend their short life in a cage or so crowded that they could barely move. One could be over run with roosters very quickly....like the time I set 16 eggs and 11 hatched...9 cockerels and 2 pullets.
