I am so sad. I live in the city, and recently, 2 of my 3 boys started showing feathers and other signs that they were roos. None had crowed but Eric yet. He crowed on Christmas morning...so I still had had my doubts and was holding out hope they were girls, especially Goldie, as "she" was so pretty. Well, today, hubby went outside to let Skye (our dog) pee, and he heard a lot of crowing in the run. That was unusual, so I looked out, and there were Goldie and Eric pulling on each other, I thought they looked like they were mating...but it was odd. So I go out to the run...and they were COVERED in blood and literally fighting to the death. They were exhausted and would peck and scratch and then run off and then peck and scratch and run off again. I immediately intervened...both were so tired, they didn't fight being held. Andy, the other roo, was inside the hen house making a ruckous of all of it...and when Eric came into the hen house, he was going to start in on him. I cleaned both of them up and knew the time had come to make a decision I hoped I wouldn't have to make...who to keep, who to give away. Eric and Goldie are both at the Feed Store to be re-homed. Now that they are seperate, you should see how Andy stands tall and proud over the ladies. It's a night and day difference. This kills me. 2 of Billy's boys, gone. We literally have no room to make extra coops, etc, and 1 roo in the city limits is legal, though we were hoping to sneak by with our 3 if they just crowed in the morning. I'm so upset and distraught, I wanted to share this, just in case there were any ideas or anything we could have done before Goldie and Eric get re-homed. Thanks.
