    Today I found that my "pullet" is actually a cockerel. I only have two chickens and they are quite attached to each other. They have been together for about a month and whenever they are separated they both "scream". I am afraid if i remove the cockerel that my pullet will be very depressed. I would plan on getting another pullet if i did get rid of my cockerel. Please share your experiences and share your opinion I am at a loss.

    Is there a reason that you have to get rid him? I have traded birds for years (taking older ones out and bringing new ones in) and it messes things up a little but things even out eventually, but I've always had more than two as well. She should adjust to her new friend. There might be some squabbles for dominance, however.

    The law for the area. I want to keep him so bad but I have no idea how to pull to off. If you have any ideas I am open ears.
