I THINK I am gonna get rid of my 8 month old cockerel. Franklin is 8 months, and is a beautiful black and gold,rumpless, clean faced araucana. I got him as day old chicks from Nancy Utterback. I kept him and 5 pullets. The pullets have mysteriously died, one by one. No symptoms, just really weird and random. I'm down to 2 pullets and I think I'm about to lose another one. If I do, I'm keeping the 1 other pullet, but have decided to probably get rid of Franklin, no reason to keep him. I have no guarantee he is not carrying whatever is killing the pullets, if anything. None of my other chickens have been affected, just the araucanas. I actually think the first 2 were poisoned. If anyone wants him, let me know. If I decide to get rid of him, I can take him to the Jefferson show this weekend if someone wants him. I was just wondering if someone might be interested in him.
