    My 5 rooster were causing so much hate and discontent. They were "attacking" if you know what I mean, the ducks,turkey and the hens. We took the boys and placed them in the nursery now known as Folsom prison. I have never seen such a difference. My 26 11 week olds are having a great time. We will be finding homes for four of them.

    We actually found a lady at the feed store that was more than happy to take our roosters, as she had too many hens! We miss them, but it was better for everyone.

    I understand your plight. One of our roos was becoming unruly and I was going to try and find him a new place. He, however, went after my little girl who was feeding him BOSS and clover at the time. Although there was a fence between them, he got her arm and hand a bit. Though it's unfortunate, he's in the fridge now.
