    Ok here goes. I raised allot of babies this year. We sold allot, gave a allot to neighbors and friends. My hub put allot in the freezer. And of course I had to hang on to a few and I bred a couple specific breeds to get a roo. Blah, Blah, blah I know... Now we're all approaching winter and I have roughly 40-45 birds all together. 13 are roos. there are at least 5 that I absolutely want to keep for next years breeding. Have several different breeds of hens. And I can't get rid of the rest. The freezer is full. I've had a free ad for weeks. I've tried to get rid of them every way shy of loading them up and dumping them on someone else. Which I would NEVER do! I don't know what to do. I have pair and trio ads for next to nothing CHEAP just to get rid of the roos. I have one big coop they sleep in and I let them free range, but with all the young roos they go way to far. I know if they didn't kill each other or break down the hens I could easily sell them in the spring. Sorry its been a long dreary week. I'm blabbing, I know. I just want to do the right thing. They are all so gorgous. I also can not give away beautiful grown muscovey drakes.
