I have never killed any of my many roos I have had. Over the past 9 months I have rehomed 9 roosters but I still had 9. Today I sent 3 to the neighbor for them to eat. I'm feeling bad about it. Speedy - he had started to try and pick fights with me which was ok but the last couple days he would suddenly charge up behind me and he has very sharp spurs. But he talked so nice and the girls loved him. I will really miss him. Puff - is one of our own, out head roo is his papa, but the girls don't like him, he's rough with them and he started the whole drop wing shuffle with me. He was so cute and sweet before. This is Smoke - the runt of the hatch, thought he was a she till this week. Caught 'her' mounting another hen and then noticed the tail and hackle feathers that really didn't look hen like anymore. 'She" has always had problems breathing - I think his nostrils are not large enough - anyway I would have kept a runty hen but there is no point to a runty roo. Anyway just venting because as much as I know it needed to happen I really wished it didn't have to.
