As much as this pains me... we are looking for a good home for our 4 month old roo. We thought "he" was a hen but after his feathers came in and then he of course started to half crow. Unluckily we can not own roosters where we are. This is our favorite bird. Easy to handle and he only seems to crow in the mornings just a bit. As you can see by the pictures he does not mind getting handled and is very sweet. If you are curious to hear his crow: http://hqcreations.tumblr.com/post/56828803604/soooo-its-official-our-dear-sweet-beautiful If anyone is within a 2 hour drive of Norwalk CT, and they can take him we will deliver him to you. Thank you for your time.
