Exchanging cockerels 2012

Hi,
I've been thinking...sometimes a dangerous activity :whistle: . Next year there will be about 25 of us with a bunch of cockerels here in the US. We know not every cockerel is best suited to sire every color. What does anyone think about a place on the forum where we can list the cockerels we don't need in our programs with pics and heritage. Then maybe we could exchange them with each other so everyone had the best cockerel possible for the colors they wanted to breed. We could even work it so the person who sends the cockerel gets back ( as a gratuity)  6 eggs from the 1st 20 laid  from the breeding of the exchanged cockerel to the receiver's hens/pullets. Whadayathink? :thumbs:
Best,

Sounds like a good idea, Karen! I'll see if I can do it, or if Claire needs to add the forum.

=======================
Well, I was just thinking  if someone wanted to specialize in Gorria and someone in Beltza and another in Marraduna, and each had the wrong color  rooster, we could help each other out. I know we won't be wanting to  swap hens, they are too precious, but the roos, before we eat them, ....maybe someone-else could use them for free or a gratuity??
Best,

I tried to add it, but don't think I can. I've passed it onto Claire.

Re: Exchanging cockerels 2012

Great idea!  So I made a new section a kind of a non-ideal EO's "Pets (etc) Euskal Oiloa Available"

Pets (etc) Euskal Oiloa Available

--Trader Breeder Roosters

Post your own breeding culls here that may help someone in their colour breeding program. Give the roosters a chance of avoiding the freezer. Trade, free or some other arrangement-you figure it out!

--All Other Pet Quality Euskal Oiloa for Sale

Hens, breeding culls, extras, someone will love them, they are friendly and lay so well!

I hope that is OK!
