    I have a confession to make...I rehomed my roo a few weeks ago to a bird sanctuary(I'm urban) and realized I had made a terrible mistake! I missed my beloved roo soooooooo much and thought of him everyday and almost cried thinking of him out in the cold weather we've been having and him not with his girls in their cozy coop.

    Anyhow, I went to the sanctuary today dropped a $20 in the donation box, found my roo, put him in my jacket and walked out. He was so happy to see me he promptly fell asleep in my jacket and then cooed all the way home on my lap while I drove!!!

    He is home and I feel like I just got the best Christmas gift ever!!!!! [​IMG]

    hahaha.. Sounds like something Jim would do, or has done and hasn't told me he

    We had a animal control seizure the other day on a place where they had the fighting birds, I've already been up there telling them we want the birds. I did a follow up today asking about when they will have an answer about them. There's a date set for the judge to decide... the 29th... dunno if I can wait that long.
    Hmm wonder if I can try your

    We won't tattle on you! [​IMG] Glad he's home. I sold a few of my call ducks last spring and have regretted it ever since.

    Aw, I can see myself doing that, too! Good for you. I bet he's happy being home with you again. I adore my roosters!

    Wow! I wish my roosters were like yours. Mine are noisy, mean, and just plain evil. They beat the crap out of each other, so much that I have to keep the two biggest locked up. I regret it every time I look at them. They always pecking at the ground around the pen border, trying to reach the ladies on the other side. *sigh*

    I came home from work one day and discovered my now ex-husband had taken my cat Pitcher to the animal shelter for adoption because he hated my cat. I called and explained what had happened and they said they would give him back for the adoption fee which was $75. I went in under the guise of looking at cats for adoption and did the same thing, stuffed him under my jacket and walked out. I even stopped at the desk and said I didn't see any I liked but thank you! I think the new shelter keeps padlocks on the cages now.

    THAT is the very reason, that I have decided to start with hens and not to get day old chicks....because their will always be more roos than I need and I won't be able to eat them, sell or give them away!!!! You are my hero....I am so glad your fellow is home, safe and sound...Dixie
