    I have a brood of chicks that are about 6-7 weeks old, and it's time to start dealing with unwanted bantam roosters. I have a silver pheonix rooster, and a few other breeds. They are all purebred and would be great for 4-H or shows or something. My question is, has anyone tried selling birds on here, and did you have any luck? Is it worth it for a bantam rooster? How are birds shipped/delivered? And if that isn't the best option, what can I do with my roosters?

    There's a Buy Sell Trade forum that you could try.
    Or there's a Michigan State chat thread
    It can be very expensive to ship birds, but plenty of folks do it.
    Unless your cockerels are very special, they aren't worth much.....
    .......and this time of year everyone has extra cockerels.
