    Amos is 6.5 months old. He is about 2.5 pounds. He is good boy, but not petable. With some TLC and treats he would get better at that. He needs his own flock to go to. His time is limited here, I just have too many boys around.

    I
    do not, will not, cannot ship.

    The pullets ain't leaving here, don't ask.

    Edited to add: He is a crowing fool with a good set of pipes. Not for someone where Roosters aren't allowed. He will NOT go unnoticed.

    Quote:I really hope I can find him a home. He has to go, one way or another. I really don't want to go the 'another' route, but I can't keep him and his brother.

    He is a mix, but they have breed true for 3 generations. It I had time, space, and a more diverse gene pool I would try to develop an actual breed. I just call them my calico bantams.

    Quote:I am a worrier. From the time I put a bird in a box until it was at its new home I would not sleep. Also, I let my NPIP expire several years ago. I never used it, so saw no point in renewing it.
