    What do you all do with your extra roos that you can't keep? I will be receiving 5 silkies on Thurs. or Fri. I already have a RIR and a BJG. I want to have chicks from them but I want to only have 1or 2 roos. What should I do?
     
  2. Are they Silkies from a place where they try to take out the roosters? If so u should get 0 maybe 1 rooster!
    Good Luck!

    Sell, give away, or eat. Last year was my first year hatching and I didn't hatch that many. What I mainly did was sell for cheap or keep. This year however I will be selling the ones who have potential but yet I don't want after that they will have to be butchered. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to raise them as if they were meat birds or just cull asap once I determine I don't want them and that no one else will buy them.
