    I have a light brahma bantam rooster and an aracona rooster. I have about twenty hens and pullets combined but on of my supposedly female buff Cochins looks like a male. I don't want to keep the bantam roo but what can I do with him? He is two years old and I don't want to eat him, I can't sell him anywhere ( sadly where we live people would do illegal things with him....) what can I do?

    Why not just keep him, he does not eat much. I have a little banty cochin rooster that lives with all standard hen and a standard rooster. He does not mate with the others.
