    Welcome to BYC Andrew!

    In addition to the info MountainPeeps gave, I advise you check out your state thread and see if anybody near you has a NH cock available. You need 20 posts to be able to use the Buy ~ Sell ~ Trade forum, so the more you post the better!

    Hope you enjoy your time here and find a good roo!

    G’Day from down under Andrew [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, living in Aus, I am not able to help with your search for a rooster but as you have already been given some good starting points, I will just add that I wish you luck and hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Hi Andrew, nice to meet you. There is a glut of roosters on the market, it's really buyers choice. Your state thread would be a good place to post.
