    My chosen rooster is a silver laced wyandotte, if i get some extra peanuts and one on of them is an amerarucana rooster then I might keep an extra rooster for my 2 amerarucana girls. I heard that some people have a couple of roosters and they get along pretty good.

    Quote:Ditto. I once had 22 extra White leghorn roos, for $ 10 I sold them all at 4 months to an elderly couple who put them in their freezer. [​IMG]
    You can always give the extras away because someone WILL take them !

    I will try Craigslist when the time comes. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
