    How soon are you looking to move them? I might be interested in the BCMs and to be honest maybe would take everything. We have lost a number of birds in the last 2 months and could probably fit them in.

    I am looking to move them whenever someone has a good home for them. DW would be heartbroken if they turned into soup right away.

    They would not be soup birds here they would join our free range laying flock. I would probably pen off the BCMs for a bit in the spring and hatch some of those pure

    I gave "minnesotanice" several dozen eggs out of the marans last fall and she had an excellent hatch rate, so Lucky the Roo is proven capable.

    I am not sure. I think if you really want someone to take them you are going to have to pay them more than 7.50..

    I would need at least 10 bucks a piece to take them. Just to cover the refuse service charges...
