Near Boone Iowa: Rooster mix breed needs new home

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi. My small flock was attacked by a predator and I lost my 3 hens. My rooster survived. The coop is not heated and with winter coming I'm afraid he wont make it. He is 3 yr old. His mom was a german spitzauben and the dad was a speckled sussex mix. He is very nice. Never attacked kids or adults. Took care of his hens.
Due to health issues we will not be getting more chickens for a while. I would like to find him a new home in the next two weeks.

Thanks.
Vanessa

I'm not entirely sure maybe usps in a pet/animal box and it all depends they ship chicks but usually more then one for warmth for just one you'd have to check the shipping requirements

The receiver would need to order an approved shipping container such as Horizon - http://www.hm-e.net/ - to ship him in. He would then need to be sent USPS Express Mail (paid for by the receiver). The shipping cost will depend on how much he weighs and the distance traveled.  It could run $75-80 to have him shipped.

Thank you for the info in shipping. I would offer to pay but I am also not able to budget that kind of expense.
Hopefully somebody local wants him? He comes with a bag of feed as well.
