Should I get a roo that is old enough to add to current flock? I'm worried about getting a mean roo.... Advice? Love my EE's....
I have a BO roo I have to eventually rehome (He's just over 3 weeks old). Sold as a sexed pullet, but he turned roo. So far, he's a great guy! He gets handled pretty often so he's confortable around people and he'll fall asleep in your hands (He's a sweetie, breaks my heart that he has to be someone elses manly man. There are too many of them here!). Duke has some growing to do though, (adult hens would torture such a little guy) so when he gets a bit bigger, if you still need a roo, let me know
