This is where I got the idea that he was illegal for you. Enjoy your new rooster! :)

We went ahead a got him at a 20% discount price.

Nice score! Good luck with your new boy.

Ooooo.....hopefully he's not the kind who lays down his life for his girls, 'protective' roosters are often the first to 'go' when a predator attacks.

Let us know how it works out for you....

.......curious also as to who decrowed him and why they are selling him?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Hi Timvdo

Can you put me in touch with the vet?  James Richards is not doing the decrow any more.

I have a roo who was supposed to be a girl.  As soon as he crows the city will take him and put him down.
