    ok. So we are new to chickens but loving it. sort of started by accident when we rescued an Ameraucana pullet from a Sheetz gas station parking lot. totally weird. anyway, asked a friend to hold her until we could build a coop then brought her home. realized quickly that they like company. got to 12 week pullets (supposed to be) for company and have since found out they are cockerials. I can't have two roosters and one Hen. We plan to gets 3 pullets in the spring but still two roosters is too many. was hoping for suggestions on placing them. they are friendly and I didn't want to list "free" roosters on Craig's list for fear they would end up on dinner plate. one is a white Leghorn and the other is RIR (We believe). he is not all red. has beautiful varied colors of reds on back and some white and dark red tail feathers. anyone have any ideas on how to rehome safely? maybe I'll see if I can figure out how to post a pic and someone can confirm breed. Thanks!
