Ernie is a very handsome, friendly boy. We got him at one day old, mixed in with hens at the hatchery - unfortunately our zoning ordinance prohibits roosters. He was raised free ranging in a fenced yard with dogs and children, even had him loose in the front yard with me. He comes running at the sound of treats, does not mind being picked up, sits next to us on the stoop. We will miss him, but would rather see him go to a good home than be forced by the town to return him to the store.
