Extreme Newbie and Looking For Advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello BYC Community from the Pacific NW!  Although I have entertained raising chickens, I am not ready to take the (what I've heard is an addictive) plunge quite yet.  However, right now I am in search of advice.  A friend of my mom's (in the Sacramento area) is in a difficult financial and living situation and must move from her home.  She has had 3 roosters for years, they are like family to her, but it's becoming increasingly obvious that she can no longer have them in her home (looking for adequate housing in a suburban area which fits her constraints). After my 20 post minimum, I hope to use the BST Animals In Need of Free Re-Homing forum, however, to do so I need to learn a thing or two in order to ask and answer the right questions.  Advice on what info to get about her roosters so that I can have a reasonable conversation with this learned community?  Thank you!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi and welcome to BYC. A trait that is very important in a roo is that he does not attack humans! If indeed the roos are friendly, then thats a bonus in trying to rehome them.

 

 

all the best

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
