Hi everyone! We hatched some eggs from a neighbor's flock that includes Golden Comets, Easter eggers, blue Copper Marans, olive eggers, a Cochin, and a Super Blue. We got some gorgeous roosters out of it - unfortunately, way too many for our small flock.

Left to right, they are: Magellan the explorer, the first one to jump out of the brooder; Speckle, seems like a goofy, easygoing guy; The Professor, the first to hatch and he taught everyone else how to drink from a nipple waterer; Spot, seems to be the least dominant of the bunch; and finally, the spectacular Grey, who was head-to-toe grey as a chick and now has gorgeous copper mixed with the grey. The photo doesn't do him justice!

These are nice birds; they've been handled frequently and they're used to being around people. They're 4 months old. Our flock is completely healthy. I'm really hoping to keep them out of freezer camp and I'm willing to deliver them within 30 miles or so of Harvard MA. Please help us out!

Thanks,
Maria

Thanks for the response! I found someone local who has a big free-ranging flock and was happy to have more roosters.

Welcome to BYC! Hope you find some lovely homes for them! I'm in the same boat with rehoming some roosters, it's a hard place to be in. After my heart broke having to rehome some others roo's. I agreed not to get more unsexed chicks for now, as it's just too hard. But a few months ago I bought three two month "pullets" and the lady gave me two roosters. They were very obvious roosters but she refused to trade. Hard place to be in, especially when they are so sweet 😭 Good Luck! Hope you find them ALL homes!
