I have an almost 6 month old Silver Cuckoo Marans roo that came to me by accident with a purchase of pullets. Have gotten attached to him although I think our household and our neighbors would be happier if he weren't crowing and chasing girls all day. I have an old hen who has always been head chicken who doesn't care a bit for him and attacks him. So far he has only fought back once but I'm afraid the day will come when he will hurt her. She's 7 years old and about a third of his size.
I had listed him several places trying to find him a good home without any luck.
Today someone showed interest in taking him but she has no hens....sounds like she has kind of a rescue retreat that includes a male goose, 2 female ducks, 8 pea fowl, goats, llama, mini horse, cats, dog and a pigeon. Do you think this would work? Would he be miserable without any girls? I want whats best for him but want some peace of mind here at home too.
Thanks so much for any input
