I had an idea that if I trade my Welsummer rooster for a male duck or peacock or goose then i won't get any unplanned pregnancies here. (please tell me I'm correct about such basic biology-that they won't mate!!)
I have only one Welsummer rooster and he will be gorgeous but I don't want more males hatching next year. He is young (3 months) hasn't started crowing and is fairly friendly at this point. He runs over to me when called (because I have food) So far my older hen dominates him......
Any one with other types of fowl interested in a trade? I keep a clean and secure coop, free range my girls in a mesh fence that can be electrified during the day, and feed them Blue Seal feed as well and sunflower seeds, worms and home made yogurt.
Your bird will be well cared for-that I can guarantee. I live upstate NY
I don't want to kill this rooster-he seems nice enough and will be gorgeous. If there was a way to neuter him I would keep him. Any other ideas gladly accepted.
