    So I currently have 6 chickens. They are about 3 months old and I'm noticing one is looking like it may be a rooster. I live in Long Beach, CA and we are not allowed to have roosters. What do I do with him? Are there places that will take him? I'm so sad because we are so attached, but I don't know what to do if it is a rooster? The place I got him does not take them back. Any ideas? Thank you!

    Hope you are wrong. I would get a couple of really good pics - be sure to show a side view and post it under what breed/gender forum for confirmation.

    Rehoming roosters is a problem for many. Try locating folks in your area in the "where are you, where am I" forum, maybe they can help. Try listing as free on Craig's list?

    Wishing you luck in the problem.


    And :welcome looks like your first post since joining. Wish you would do an intro in the New Members forum to get a proper welcoming.

    If you can post a picture we can tell you whether or not you have to worry.

    What breed is the one in question?
