    So, I've got four hens/pullets. One white Leghorn, one RIR, and two american game. I'm starting to think that my backyard might be a little small to support so many birds, so I might want to give away/sell a couple of them. (I'm in Los Angeles.) For me the obvious candidates are the american games, since the whole reason I have these birds is for eggs anyway, and the other two are supposed to be the good layers. (Although none of them have actually started laying yet - they are probably four months old or so)

    Are there any sites or anything where I can post or find folks that might be interested in taking them? Anyone breed american game chickens around LA maybe? What impact would it have on the other birds reducing my flock to only two?

    Thanks, just interested in your thoughts.
