I am melting looking at all the pictures the hens/babies!
I don't suppose it would be possible to borrow someone's roo for a few days to knock my girls up?
Whatta ya think? Wishful thinking?

i would not let my roo go to my best friends,even if his chickens looked good,some times they could be carriers of something and not show it and my roo could end up sick i'm not taking a chance.sorry i love my roosters

It's a bad idea in the name of biosecurity. Now if you lived nextdoor and already "shared germs" anyway it might be less of a big deal but

It will upset the pecking order in both flocks. Seems like a lot of hastle.


If your neighbor has fertile eggs, just get some from them!!

Why not just look for a roo on CL or something? Unless you're wanting a specific breed, and even if you are, if you post a "rooster wanted" ad I'm sure you'll find plenty of folks that have too many roos for their flock. When you're done with him, you can give him away on CL to a good home, or give him to your tummy in some chicken noodle soup.
