Cockerel dilemma.....!

My neighbour kindly agreed to take 6 'point of lay' chicks to help out a friend. 6 very immature birds arrived and turned out to be 3 hens and 3 cocks...! (Some friend!)
You can guess where this is going - 3 fine cockerels (Rhode Island Red, I think) growing in size and voice, residential location, aggravation, sleep deprivation, etc...
Managed to re-home 2 locally, but struggling to find somewhere suitable for the 3rd.
Any offers to take him or suggestions (other than 'Paxo' or recipes) would be appreciated. Swap for 2 or 3 'female' hens perhaps...?
Shropshire location, but will travel for a suitable resolution.
