    Hello to all! My name is Colin and I am new to chicken owning. I have a wife, Brenna, and a ten-month-old son named Calen. We have four roosters that we found abandoned last weekend, but are planning on getting three of the four adopted and getting 5-6 female chicks. The rooster that we plan on keeping is, according to what I've been told by chicken owners smarter than me, at least part Ameraucana with some Easter Egger in him.

    Here is his pic:

    Here are some pics of the other roos that we're trying to find happy homes for:

    I'm hoping to get a coop built for the first roo and some hens over the course of the next couple weeks.

    Thanks so much for all of the hospitality! It's a real pleasure to be a part of this awesome forum!
