    nope=( I know a guy who buys eggs from me would pay a few dollars for a rooster for the meat, and if you wanted to give them away, thats what I would do with them, otherwise no, Don't need any more roosters eating all the food=)

    I'm in Louisburg (north of Raleigh) - I have a BR cockerel who is singing and dancing with his ladies already (he is about 4 months old). He is not a full blood b/c he has some leg/foot feathers ( I think his daddy is a Columbian Cochin) but he is pretty and sweet! I don't really want to part with him but if it meant he got a home to make some cute BR babies I'd let him go. [​IMG]

    well i would like to hold out for a full blood, im not an expert on breeding chickens or anything, but i imagine i may lose some traits i want by mixing them
