I'm with you and your mom, it's time. As much as I want a rooster, I wouldn't be keeping one like that around, in fact, I had one that I thought I was going to keep. I was bent/kneeling down to take care of my chicks in the nursery hutch. I just happened to look around behind me, and there was this rooster I was thinking of keeping, if..if, the collar worked. He had a look in his eye! And that boy came charging, backed off, started again, I hurried and reached for him, he ran off. I chased him around the run sweeping my foot at him. He actually got a bit brave again the next week, same look, same little charge. I got rid of him pretty quick. No chop block, but went to a large piece of land where he wouldn't bother anyone but the hens..hmmm, and maybe another rooster? Can't have a mean rooster here. I have grandchildren. Sorry you have to do this.

Catching up, maybe someone has told you all of the places.
You can go to whatever breed of chicken you are looking for, in threads here. There may be someone close by.
You can go to your own state thread, that's what a lot of us do. We have what we call the chicken train. If someone is heading north and there are some chicks/eggs they can bring back they do..and works the other way too. North, to South.
There's the buy and trade thread. You may find someone close by.

Sorry about the roo, but it sounded like it needed to be done.
you know we had a silkie roo, and you know they are not that big, whoda thunk they could get so mean, I felt bad because I couldnt send him somewhere else and my family refused to eat a black chicken so I had to give him to a friend to do. I just felt I should have done it myself but the kids and husband and perhaps I might even have issues too lol with a black chicken kinda like green ketchup
@howfunkyisurchicken what are you up to woman????? missing your posts! Whut up wit yer EMU!!!!
They are so cute though. They have some pink spots but with my other silkies, I bet they could make some pretty babies. None of my paints have loud spots and all my silkies are from one breeder so, of course, I really needed these two!
