    I love the idea of hatching my own little chicks, but what am I supposed to do with 10 roosters? That would totally be my luck!! [​IMG] What do you guys do?

    There's really only 2 choices. Eat them or sell/give them away.

    That's what I figured... I didn't know if there was some secret alternative that I didn't know about as a chicken newbie!

    Selling them cheap to those that will eat them is what usually do.

    I've had decent luck recently selling a few. However, I really want to get up the nerve to process my own once so I can have that option. It's just tough when my daughter names every one that hatches! LOL!
