    I can't eat mine either, I either give them away or sell them for about $2.00

    ask around. you might be surprised at who will take them off your hands. i get lots of free meat that way. i find it easier to eat other people's than my own, too. lol

    My feed store will take them, then they sell them for a couple bucks. Saves me having people at my house and they get a lot of ranch/farm traffic obviously. I've never seen a rooster or a rabbit there more than a day.

    I was wondering too! I know I dont have the guts to take them out myself, but I dont think I would mind eating them. Well, I dont even have chicks yet, so I should not say that yet. I might mind eating them. But can you send them to someone else to butcher? And if so, who?
