    Yup just E- mail me with any Left over roo's you can't home. Must be of layer,Duel purpose, or meat breeds. I can't do much with ornamental birds. bantams ect. I have 640 acres to fill up with chicken tractors im 300+ birds in cannot wait till you drive around this part of the map and instead of seeing fields of cattle you see flocks of chickens. My trend is catching on here quickly [​IMG]

    Man, I wish you lived around here. I got two Welsummer cockerels and a Sebright cockerel that I just do not need :p

    My Pekin drake tricked me into keeping him. One day it's 'RUN AWAY! HUMAN!'. I take him to the swap, can't sell him, and now he's 'I LOVE YOU MUMMY!' [​IMG] figures!

    Quote:Chicken tractors? Are you saying the chickens will all be housed in tractors? I guess I don't understand. Why would you want a bunch of roosters? Where are you located?

    Yah a location would be helpful. [​IMG] I wish someone near me would just open up a big rooster farm - then I could quit worrying. [​IMG]

    I am in Okarche oklahoma, maybe my definition of tractor is different then yours. [​IMG] These guys Go Out in my pastures. I Free range my flock Literally they have wheat fields I just drag them out to a good spot In the pastures leave them In for a week or so then release them There usually always up and ready for bed by the time I get there to Close down shop. I recently have invested into several old camper shells (pull behinds) I am building up to Mobile coops also Far as the question. "Why would I want roosters?" to me it all taste like chicken. Roo's are for breeding depending on if there breed specific. and If there not they would be caponized and still get to range.

    Ah...got it! Wish you were closer to VA...it's looking like I've got a 50/50 mix! Thanks, standard run. I couldn't just order them hatchery style like I should have. Didn't get my Dominiques and got boys to boot!
