    Hello,

    We had three roo's in our last batch of chicks. I was able to give two to another home, but still have this one.
    This little guy was the runt of the bunch and super sweet. We were so sad when he started crowing so young. If anyone is interested in providing a good, loving home. Please get in touch with me.
    We live in Venice, CA and a roo is just too loud for our little neighborhood.

    He's been hand raised since just a couple days old. I added two photos.
    One of Choco when we first got him & the other is about 8 weeks old. He's sitting on my daughters lap.

    Thanks for looking. Krista

    Did I mention he is FREE.

    I notice I didn't write that in the post, but Yep, FREE. Sweet, young roo.

    Thanks. He is adorable.
    Right now we have a homemade "no crow collar" on him, and he's not that loud. We'd love to keep him, but we live in a beach area, very urban. We're pushing it with all our animals. Where is WA do you live? I grew up heading to Lynden WA every summer to visit my grandparents on their farm,

    That is a little south of Lynden. We drove our family up to WA for a week camping on the Olympic peninsula a few years ago.
    I love WA. Love your lavender orphingtons. I had a lavender a while back.We lost her :(
    Orphingtons are the best. I was hoping for a chocolate hen....
