  1. We got "Red" as 1 of 6 little fuzzbutts on June 1. Unfortunately, we live in a town that doesn't allow roosters and those feathers and tail scream "I ain't no chick!". Red is very playful and is always first in line for treats. If you toss a bug into the run, even if Red was in another county, he would snatch that bug up so fast you wouldn't even see him! The hens wouldn't even have realized there was a bug at all.

    He doesn't care much for petting or getting picked up, but once you've got him, he settles down enough to give him a health inspection or some forced affection. All my chickens have been hand fed and love to follow me around. He's been raised on organic feed, veggies and fruit.

    I hate to let him go, but I'm afraid if the town finds out about him, I'll be screwed. Our run is semi-permanent and probably not up to code. If you have an equal-aged pullet you don't want, I'd be happy to trade for her.
