    He is 15-16 weeks old. I live in the middle of Indianapolis, and he crows too much for having such close neighbors. He is not agressive toward adults or children. He only has standard size hens around, and is just too small to mate with them.

    Please let me know if you are interested. I would be willing to meet someone halfway from anywhere in Indiana or comparable distance in Illinois or Ohio.

    He certainly seems to what to mate, but he is so much smaller that all he can get a hold of is a feather on the wings, tail, or head, and the hens always get away again. He even does this to the Cornish Xs that are 6 weeks old but much larger than he is.

    HI! Seymour is GREAT! When is a good time for you? I am very flexible, well between harvesting and canning, time and day.
    These are some of my girls that come up to visit often. And this is Ginger and Skipper who spend almost every minute of the day watching over them.

    How about this evening?

    I could meet you there at about 8 pm. I don't have my husband's cell phone here, so I can't call you since I don't have long distance on my land line.
