    Hi! We are going to sell the hens but we don't know what to do about the rooster! What should we do about him?

    X2 - If you're getting rid of the hens, why would you hang onto him? He'd be lonely as a single bird.

    One price for the whole group. Unless you want to eat him yourself.

    Around where I am, you put roosters up for $5 and dont' ask what they'll do with it if you really want to sell them. Insisting they be part of a group could work but it's iffy.
