    Chances are that in your bunch you might still have a roo hiding. Lol! One of my assorted brown egg layers is a speckled sussex roo.

    Good news is that this time of year roosters are easy to come by as all those folks who did not want one are finding them in their batches of "pullets" from this spring...........in fact, depending on your location you may find someone here who is nearby you that has an extra roo or two
