    hi everyone,

    i'm been on here for a while but never posted. i love the site and i've gone here first for any issues with my chickens, so this is where i hope i can post about my rooster problem. i hatched this guy from a RIR rooster i had last year and an Ameracauna hen. I know there's a lot of questions about ameracauna/americana/easter egger, but i bought her from a poultry farmer who sold her to me as an Ameracauna. She does lay greenish/blue eggs. I hatched two of her eggs last spring and got a hen and a rooster (the one in question here). The hen also lays greenish/blue eggs, so i'm thinking any chicks hatched from my rooster would also lay greenish/blue eggs. Maybe? the gene is clearly there, but i'm not entirely sure of the genetics to be honest.

    Anyways, i love this rooster, but i'd like to get rid of him. my coop is kind of crowded, and he's treading the hens and has left one of them with a naked back already. he is AWESOME with people. not at all aggressive, will eat out of my hand, and he waits until nearly 7am each morning to start crowing. That's much later than the one i had before, who would start at like 4am.

    please post here or message me if you're interested in taking him. i want him to go to a nice home and not be culled, so i hope you'd be honest about your intentions. he's about 9 months old now. in the pictures below you can see his mother (the all-white hen) and his sister (light brown with gray tail feathers)

    Hi, bumping this. I'm still hoping to get rid of the rooster listed above. I'm in southwestern Connecticut
