    I have two polish bantams that need to go. For those that were unable to have chickens for dinner, what's the easiest method for finding a home for roosters. We are new to backyard chickens and apparently I don't have enough posts to post in the buy/sell area here. I sent a message to our 4-H group and a local poultry contact to see if they know of anyone who would want them. Do you have any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    I'd try craigslist. Seems to be the most-used method! [​IMG]

    I'd do Craigslist too- although keep in mind CL folks are probably going to eat him. At least when I collect up free CL roosters, that's what I want them for. If you're choosy about homes, you might have a harder time finding him a home, but try and add some "cutesy" elements to your ad and you may find him a great home!

    Yep I agree that CL people that get free roos are more than likely gonna eat them.
