We recently set up our own backyard chickens - got a couple of teen hens from my friend who received a bunch that were all sexed as girls. Had Zuri (Orpington) and Lucy (Rhode Red) now for almost 4 months and expecting our first eggs soon. Zuri is super friendly - sits in my lap in the evenings and eats from our hands - always interested in what we are doing, likes to look in the patio windows at the other pets (cats and dog). Sadly Zuri started "Cock-a-doodle-dooing" and it is obvious now that our Zuri won't be laying any eggs. The really sad part is now that we are so attached to "him" we find we have to find him a new home. I've been covering up the coop at night so that he won't make his wake-up call - this has been working for now. Would love some advice on how to find a place for him - I don't want him to end up on a dinner table or at a cock fight.
