since i live in the burbs and he is already a month old (i miss him as a little week-old, so cute!) we will have to give him away when he gets noisy. how soon do roos usually start crowing? I will miss him, he is the one chicken in the coop who will actually walk onto my hand and perch there. Once he flew onto my head- and got tangled in my hair lol! He is an EE bantam. The reason we got him was because we ere getting chicks and we forgot to look and see what gender they were. They turned out to be strait run only.
