    I give them to some of my neighbors who fatten them up. In the future I may have some butchered for my self. I mainly got pullets now. [​IMG]

    I cant eat them, so I sell them very very cheap. I just sold 8 roosters and included a 9th free for $8 about 2-3 weeks ago.

    I gave my extra three away. The lady offered to pay me, but I knew the were going to a good home so I refused to take money for them.
