    I have a 5 month old Giant Jersey roo that I unfortunately cannot keep anymore. He decided that he can pick on our other roo through the fence and we just don't have anymore room to make another area for him. He weighs between 7-9 pounds and will likely get close to 13 pounds which is their average. He is currently crowing and fertilizing eggs. Please message me for more info...Thanks!

    If you don't find a home for Elvis, and if he isn't delicious with carrots and noodles, you might try attaching a couple of thin plexi sheets to the bottom 2' of the run between the roos. I found some at Lowe's near the glass-cutting station.

    Good luck!

    I put 1/2" square wire mesh between mine, and they figured out in a day to quit pecking. They still blow out their hackle feathers at eachother and say rrrRRRrrrrrrr all at the same time, but their combs are all healing up and no fighting. I wish you were closer. My friend NEEDS a JG roo right now.
