Can't kill the rooster

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a very sweet RIR rooster. I bought sexed pullets, but got this rooster. I can't keep him, I want eggs to eat, not chicken.

I am in the Stephenville Texas area. Does someone need a sweet rooster? He is less than 2 months old.

Hello and welcome to BYC!

 

I understand your situation here. It is hard to kill off a sweet young bird.

 

You might place an ad (it is free) here in our Buy Sell and Trade section in the Animals in need of Rehoming section... http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16182/animals-in-need-of-free-re-homing

 

You might also check out your local feed store. Many times they have a bulletin board you might leave a flier on. Craigslist isn't the best place, but you could try there. 

 

Talk around in your feed store even local vet's offices. My regular dog and cat vet has an assistant that keeps flocks of all kind...you might find someone that would be willing to take him.

 

Good luck and I hope you can find your sweet boy a nice forever home! :-)
