    Hello,
    I just recently got into small scale chicken farming for a hobby. I got quite a few chicks from a friend and he had your typical barnyard breeds. I ended up getting more roosters than i know what to do with. I was thinking about taking them to the local sale barn or feed store to see what i could potentially sell them for. I know for sure that most of the roosters are approx. 5 months old and are Dutch/Nankin cross. And i believe 2 or 3 are Cochin/Dutch cross. Any suggestions on what price i might ask for them? Or suggestions on where else to try and sell them?

    In my experience, in most areas, you're very lucky to get $5-10. Most people taking roosters are taking them for the soup pot (especially barnyard mixes like this).

    I'd suggest you eat them.
