    I need to find a new home for one of my Dark Brahma roosters, Popeye. He's the one in my picture. I currently have 3 roosters & only 21 hens, so my 2 older boys have a need to hoard all the women. He's 2 yrs old, has never gone after anyone. Located in Athens PA.

    If you don't find anyone who can take him, perhaps you can buy him another hen and keep them together, away from the flock, until she gets used to him? (I have a Dark Brahma rooster with three hens, and when I brought in another pair Manto kind of ignored them both. Once he started showing an interest in the new hen, she was already used to hanging out with Sir Nigel and would not let Manto catch her. - Unfortunately a copperhead just killed her a few days ago, and rather than re-homing Sir Nigel, who is now alone, I hope to find a new hen for him. I don't know if it will work, but it is hard to find someone who can accommodate such huge roosters!) Either way, good luck with Popeye!
