Hello, we have probably 8-10 roosters that would love to find new homes. These roosters are all heritage bred with great genetics, we ordered them as chicks from Sandhill Preservation, they arrived in April 2017. Now they are big, beautiful boys, and we ended up with more roosters than we expected. We want to keep them all but its just not gonna work out, too much testosterone on the farm right now. That being said, they have all been hand raised from chicks and fed only 100% organic whole grains and kitchen and garden scraps. None of these roosters have EVER flogged or attacked anyone, most of them are easy to handle.
Several breeds to choose from including Black, White and Buff Minorcas, Buff Orpingtons, Red Laced Wyandotte, New Hampshire, and White Jersey Giant just to name a few. These roosters are intended as breeding stock or flock roosters. They have been raised with care, are familiar with pigs and dogs, and are all good boys. We are in the Northwest Arkansas area, reply for more info

Good luck finding homes for those boys. Roosters can hard to re-home, hence why many wind up turning them into soup.
With the chicks we ordered (21 total) I'm expecting at least 2 roosters, assuming the claimed 90% accuracy on sexing is correct. I've made a deal with the kids that I'd try to sell any roosters before sending them to freezer camp. I expect freezer camp to be the most likely outcome, except for maybe some of the more expensive/desirable breeds like Barnevelder, Black Copper Marans, and Welsummer. Those might just find a home outside the freezer/stock pot.
ETA: If you haven't already, try posting them up on Craigslist or similar service. A forum like this might only have a very few people close by enough to have a chance on selling them to. A local Craigslist should get you much better exposure to local chicken raisers.
