    Hello all;

    Tonight we let two of our five roosters go to a good home, as you might remember, my wife and I posted in the "what gender is this?" section and found out that all of our chickens were male. We still love them as pets though and buy local eggs from a free range household up the road.

    So now we have three rather shaken babies, any advice as to how to calm them down? They've all gone to bed right now but I am sure that they are wondering what happened to the other two.

    Thanks so much!

    Just give it a few days - any time there is a change in flock dynamics things get a bit shaken up.

    Thanks so much for that, we are so in love with them. Many people think, "you're in love with all roosters?!" Yes we are lol
