I am trying to find a home for the two rooster chicks I have raised. I am wanting them to go to a home together, since they are brothers, a No-Kill home that is predator-free. I have posted an ad to the effect in my area, and tonight I got a phone call, but I am suspicious the caller wants my roosters for dinner! I asked him a lot of questions and have an appointment to view his set-up. Does anyone know whether animal sanctuaries take in roosters? Ideally I'd like to find a home for my roosters near my own home, so I can visit them and take them good food and treats, and make sure they are being well cared for. The man who called said he already has 50 roosters, but he is a Spanish speaker, so he may have misunderstood... I tried to explain that you should have no more than one rooster per 10 hens, and he thought that was a city ordinance, not a rule for the welfare of the hens. So he's not too well educated about chickens, and that scares me. I'm wondering what are some good questions to ask those who call interested in my roosters, to weed out the folks who wouldn't make good owners. I asked him whether any of his chickens had died, and he said a few had died of the cold this winter. That is weird, because it hasn't been that cold here. He lives not too far from me, which is good. I asked if he had a coop, and he didn't know what that was, but when I asked about a chicken house, he said he had one. He said he feeds them scratch and pellets. When I asked if he would eat my roosters, he said he wanted eggs. He claimed he had a lot of hens, but I thought he said he had 60 chickens, so if he has 50 roosters, that is only 10 hens. But that may have been the language barrier. I'm pretty sure the town he said he lives in does not allow chickens. Unless his property is grandfathered in... So I am going to mosey over there and check it out. Any other good ideas out there as to how I might best go about finding quality homes for my boys. I have several weeks, I think, before I have to give them away (when their hormones kick in). They are crowing already. Pablo did say he realizes that roosters can fight, and that mine would need to be separated from his for a period of time. Mine are 14 weeks old. He said his were 2-3 years old, and then said, or a couple of months. So who knows what that means? Maybe I should try to find a native English speaker to take my boys, to alleviate my own separation anxiety.
