    My parents are making me get rid of one (or both) of my roosters. It makes me very upset; I get a long with those birds...I raised them from little chicks; however, my parents don't get along with them (my dad just hates them and my mom is just scared of them for no reason). I don't understand why...these are seriously the sweetest roosters you'll ever have.

    My dad said he's going to shoot them if I can't re-home one (or both). He wants more laying hens, so to make room they have to go (at all costs).

    These birds will both be a year old in May. They are both very healthy. There's not much meat on them, but will make wonderful yard ornaments (or whatever).

    If there's anyone who lives in Western, NY (I live more so in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area) who would want a rooster (not that very many people do) I am willing to give one (or both) up to a good home. In fact, would very much appreciate it.

    (I just can't stand to kill them.)

    So take your pick....

    No I haven't. For some reason my computer won't let me access that sight (or make an account) but thank you for the suggestion.

    you dont need a rooster for eggs but incubating is great and a rooster will help keep the girls in line when they get a little bigger also warning them of predators go for it you know you want one

    Quote:I think Jamestown is just short of 2 hours away. I'm not sure if your friend would really like to drive that distance for a rooster, lol... but if they are, let me know.

    Thank you.
