Me too! Idk if I could process my own, even a jerky roo. I did have one years ago. They are illegal here too, but you can hear them all over my neighborhood. My neighbors at the time "ok'd" me having a roo, but I still could have gotten a fine if somebody wanted to turn me in. It's too bad, BC I love Roos (the GOOD ones). They have so much personality and are usually a little more friendly than the girls as chicks. My suspected Silkie roo, Slimy Bob, was my first hatch ever and our favorite, but at only 2 weeks old, he's already getting a little too spunky. I thought Silkies were supposed to be super docile, but Slimy Bob is such a pecker to the other suspected roo. I could just not be familiar with roo behavior though. Out of all the chickens I've ever had, only one was ever a boy. Pretty darn lucky.
This is Slimy Bob. I think I need to rehome him soon, but I'm going to be pretty picky about who gets him. We love Slimy Bob. Edited by Naliez - 9/27/15 at 1:36pm
