    i went out to my birds and realized that they were starting to get bare backs. i decided to get rid of my mean roo but i dont want to kill him. what is the best way to find a rooster a home? or would it be better to just get more hens? im getting more birds in the spring anyway, but since he's a jerk i want to find a new home for him. how should i do this without just giving him to some random hobo?
    details on roo:
    sometimes mean
    sometimes skiddish
    used to being in charge
    will chase people
    has never bitten anyone
    good with other birds
    has a foot and wing problem due to an injury but does not affect him very much
    is a bad flyer though
    good at defending hens
    probably needs a home

    Where are you located? Have you looked at adding him to craigs list? You can put him in there and ask that you screen every inquiry. There are also some swaps that are found on facebook according to location that might have people looking just for an established roo for their flock.

    I posted on craigslist and had my two boys picked up. Most people you can email back and forth about what kinda land they have and everything. My one roo went to a 10 acre farm with his own ladies and fields to run around on! Lucky guy right! My other one I actually go and visit every now and then so you never know, you just have to ask :)
