    Heres my dilema, instead of having to kill one of my cornish bantam roosters I am trying to give him away. but to no avail . So if that doesnt work out whens the best time to you know do the deed??? Hes only 3 months old. [​IMG]:hit:hit:hit:hit:hit. I dont want that as an option but so far its the only one.

    Anytime from 12-15 weeks old is the best time to butcher. After that the meat can become tough.

    It can be tough to get rid of unwanted roosters in my area as well, hang in there, maybe someone will want him.
