Alina, this thread is for people who are happy to have their birds go somewhere where they will be eaten. Is that ok?

Hi Lucy C and thanks for that.

Yes I am aware that most of them will end up in the pot, but there are enough of them and they are good enough quality that people may want to keep one for breeding and the rest for the freezer. Re-reading my post it does sound like I don't want them to go into the pot! I hope most of them don't but I am realistic enough to know that they will.

Maybe we need a "Second chance" listing? Too good for the pot but what do you do with them otherwise??

Oh the joys of being born a rooster!! :pat

Alina.

Thanks

Still fine at that age Jacki, and if they are still available I'll happily take them off your hands.

Koroit District Kinder has 9 cockerals ready to be rehomed, age 6 -8 weeks 98% are x breeds.
Breeds they are cross with are blue/splash orpingtons with feathered legs (cochin x?), silkie x leghorns, 1 x salmon fav with a bad eye (deformed at birth). And i can personally add to australorp boys that are 16 week old. Only good for meat purposes, not quality stock.
Location Koroit Vic, 20 minutes from Warrnambool / Port Fairy Victoria

I'm in Parramatta, and I'd like to add my name to the long list of those willing to receive if there are any birds available in the area.
