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?
