    My year plus old Americana roo was laying under the roost dead a couple weeks ago. If anyone in the Springfield, MO area (I am 30 miles N. of Springfield) has a young, healthy Americana roo hunting for a home, i might be able to help you out. I don't want him till after July 8th, when company leaves, so shouldn't be writing this yet, I guess, but........
    I have 22 hens, mostly Americana. I can't imagine what happened to Ralph. He was healthy-seeming, not thin, had no mites or lice, and no predators can get into my pen. He was just laying dead under the roost, not a feather out of place, as tho he just toppled off in his sleep. Heart attack? Anyway, am considering another roo, if anyone has a pretty one in this area, that is young and needing a good home.

    Well if you feel like taking a road trip after your company leaves.........I have a beauty. I just finally convinced myself that he is in fact a rooster. I think he is so beautiful i have been planning to keep him. I thought if the right home came along, i would let him go. New England really is gorgeous......take a ride and bring back a new rooster. If you go to my posts and look at the one 'another hen or roo question' you can see his pics. I think he must be an EE.

    Lurky--that is definately a pretty boy, but guess he is a bit too far away. LOL I'd love to take a drive to the area, but we drove to see a daughter in Las Vegas a little over a Month ago, and then just got back from a drive to Yellowstone last week, so our vacation budget is about shot for a while. LOL

    Well, ya never know. If i did not mention it, i probably would have read a post about your trip to new england and i woulda wished i had told ya. I am not going to advertise him, but i have no need for him and i am not supposed to have a rooster where i live. I pay enough taxes that i will keep him as long as i want to LOL

    No Lurky, but I was planning on taking a pic of him to put on here. I really need to get rid of him, but if I can't find him a home -he stays [​IMG] I am hoping someone on here wants him. I'll take that pic soon.

    How far are you from Chilicothe MO? Around the first of August my hubby has to take his some back to his moms in CHilicothe. I have a real nice looking roo, I am ot sure if he is pure Americana, never really looked that close. I have a large americana roo that runs this one around all the time so he really needs a new home. I think he is planning on taking him back Sunday the 5th. I am not positive just yet though. The only thing is that you would have to meet him right away and not be late since it is a 5 hr trip one way for us so he cant be waiting around. I will post pics if you are interested. Jenn

    Hi, Jenn
    UNfortunately, it is about3 or 4 hours from us--I live in SW MO, and Chillicothe is in N. MO, up a little north and some east of Kansas City. Little too far to drive for a rooster, considering the price of gas. Thanks for thinking of me, tho.
