    So I live on 10 acres in North Texas and have six hens and seven roosters. Yes it is a bit noisy. I am trying to find new homes for some roosters since I am unable to work up the nerve to eat them. We have dominiques, Wheaton Marans, cuckoo Marans and Cochin Americuna crosses. Trying to find new homes for 2 Wheaton roosters, and 2 Cochin Americuna crosses.

    Also I have a weird issue with the cuckoo marans...according to research the males should be lighter, but I just saw the darker cuckoo marans mount the lighter one?/ plus the darker one has a huge comb comparatively. This makes no sense, unless there is something wonky with the genetics of these cuckoo marans....anyone else experience this?

    Greetings from Kansas, Summerswell, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! I think with that many roosters they are just doing what roosters do. Best of luck with your roosters!

    You can try placing a free ad on Craiglist for your roosters. I've had really good luck selling my birds through Craiglist.
