    your best bet, (if you still have them)

    is to post on your local Craigs List.

    Other options, is ask around.

    I do butcher my own birds, but I sometimes get overwhelmed with the number of roosters that need to be processed, and I know who I can ask if they might like a few.

    Sometimes I sell them for $5 each, sometimes I give them away for free.

    Do you know anyone who likes to go squirrel hunting? those types will usually be happy to take some roosters.

    I am in North Dakota and I am wondering what breeds they are, I am looking for real breeds. [​IMG]
