    He's scared to crow, He knows that when he crows the other rooster will bust his butt

    I had a young rooster that never crowed even once while stuck in the coop this winter with the other roosters. As soon as I opened the door to the yard this spring (we still had 3 ft of snow but I threw sawdust on top of it near the door, he marched right out onto the snow & started crowing. I guess he figured out he was the only chicken willing to stand on the snow! He started getting beat up once the snow melted though... (he's now off by himself waiting for a new home)

    Breed him and sell the offspring to all the city dwellers who can't have roosters???? [​IMG]
