    Good Manered Rooster for 5 Lucky Ladies :) All Different!!! RiR, Blonde Buff Orp., Blk. Austrol., Wt. Americana & last but not least Red/Blonde Sexlink All wonderful & in there Teens (Hatched late Sept. early Oct..) Hand picked for me at the Hillsborough County Fair! Now residing in Brandon Florida!

    It was suggested that I lookk for a Plymouth Rock or a Americana mix...altough "good" temperment & manners can vary from the enviroment & handleing also. So I think I'm looking for a Good Nautred Rooster about their age or close to it! Those are the best qualification. Was at the State Fair but I was warned by the same kind lady that picked my chicks out for me that these Roosters are for show not temperment!

    She suggested listing with you :)

    Hope to find a Rooster before they go into their walk in coop...right now they think they live in a Condo & run on my screened in porch LOL. I could take 1 or 2 hens about the same age used to being together or with the Rooster...from what I understand adding a couple of hens @ same age with the Rooster right about Now would be OK. I've added in the past 1 hen what a disaster...went & got another hen added at night & spend the day watching no problems but after everything is established Chickens & Rooster & Home I'd rather not disturb the group again..they're my pets the eggs are fun & the chicks will be a Great Suprise for my Grandchildren...& not knowing what they're going to look like will be a Mystery!

    So far I've named them after the Play I just finished "The Penultimate Problem of Sherlock Holmes" Sherlock, Adler, Prof.Morierty, Listrade & Watson LOL... there's room for M. Dupin, Ms. Piper & Ms. Hudson! If they already are named & know their names Of Course I'll Keep it the same ;)

    I've had chickens ever since I lived in Ocala as a teenager...I'm 56 now & as they say you can take the Girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the Girl. Never met a Pet Chicken without a personality & never had one with the same personality!

    Oh by the way the coop is a nice size walk in with perches to roost, laying box with a sun roof located under a shade tree & protected on 3 sides...early morning sun with some early afternoon sun. I've had this Coop since I aquired the property & it is maintained well against preditors...althought I now things can happen ): they say.... (the chickens & coop are Grandfathered in but inorder to avoid problems I have a 6ft. privacy fence.

    There's also a "Herd" of wild/tame Peacocks in my neighborhood (@ 40-42 total) that run I & many of my neighbors feed them...some hate them but they make their rounds & make enough noise to keep the neighbors busy...That's why I refer to my self as GAP56-Flying Low...LOL

    MIFOTN... I'm sure but I had fun sharing & I hope you enjoyed reading this..thru my many years I've accumutaled many animal sories & rescues...my friends love the stories..LOL

    PS I'm thinking about renaming my coop... it used to be "The Misfits" LOL... Now I'm leaning towards 221 Baker St. :) Sherlock you know & his "Unsolved Mysteries" :) Need the complete cast then...Ms Piper, Ms. Hudson & Mousiour Dupin ( Dupin is a French Dectective & quite a show man! )

    Still Looking & Hoping...1 Rooster will do nicely...2 "teenage" Hens would be a Bonus!
