    I have an orange rooster named nick and a white brahma hen. Basically I have 2 coops and he stays in one while my other newer rooster stays in the other with most of the flock. I gace him this one unwanted chicken i didnt really care much about with him and they are supposivly lovers or something Anyway i feel kind of bad giving him away but i need to becuase i dont think hes happy here and i dont really like him all that well most of the time he attacks me and puts crap all over my jeans. But i feel bad though usually like right now at nighttime at daytime i dont feel it and i can get rid of him but at night i feel bad. He needs to go the 2 roosters overmate badly and had holes dug into 2 chickens side's. My new rooster, dosel is a nice young fellow. He walks up to me and pecks me if he wants food i can pick him up and hell follow me. Very nice rooster i got him as a chick. So im going to keep him and give away nick and his "wife" but dont know how to to it well. I Gave away a red rooster last summer and im pretty sure hes dead by now becuase these were first timers.

    I only got one call on cl ad i dont think hes interested depite him emailing me...

    I gave my 3 roosters to a friend of mine. She loves roosters and I know they won't be killed, that was my worst fear because these three were my babies and loved me, and I loved them, to death. I would say give him to a friend. If he's mean, most people would most likely not want him.

    Advertise him for meat. Honestly, no one wants your mean rooster. Best thing for him is to feed someone. And please be truthful in your advertising.
