Hi
Hope this isn't a really dumb question but I would like to hatch some eggs but can't keep males. Is there anyone who will take the chicks off my hands if they turn out to be cockrels?
Regards

That's a great idea Kathy. Would the other chickens try and kill it? I was going to get eggs so the chickens would accept a chick in to the brood easier. By the way how do you kill a chick? (I don't think either me or my OH could do it.)

This thread is for hatching egg questions, to keep the 'Eggs For Sale' thread for sales only. ;) :-) (Hopefully this will make it easier to spot the ones you're after! 8) )
Happy in Hampshire!
