Good morning! I'm new to owning chickens. I purchased my 4 chicks online I'm very excited the only thing is I have too many roosters the company I bought my chicks from sent me extra chicks just in case a few don't make the journey, but everyone made it. So now I'm stuck with 3 roosters not sure what to do with them? I can't keep them? Any suggestions please

Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
How old are the cockerels?
I've successfully rehomed 7 cockerels by taking the best pictures I can get of them, preferably with nice plantings or other attractive scenery in the background, and posted them to CL for $5 or to FB Poultry groups for same. If I get someone interested, I ask what their intentions are for the boys. You usually don't get anyone willing to pay any amount of money for a bird they intend to put in the freezer.
All my boys have gone on to be flock leaders, breeder roosters or pets.
