    I have rehomed many a roo for biting my girl's heads. I have some buff orpingtons who have no feathers on their heads to this day because of my last roo and I rehomed him 3, almost 4 months ago! I'm beginning to think that they'll never grow back. Poor little things!

    Poor cats and poor rabbits - they're induced ovulators! Can you imagine every time you got it on, you get pregnant!?! [​IMG]
