    You could post an ad on Craiglist in the "Free" section or you can mail him to me!

    It sure does have big feet doesn't it?! I can't say for sure if it's a roo. Mailing chickens isn't a problem at all except for the expense. Well, finding the right type of shipping box can be a problem but the Postal Service does a great job of handling live animals. Mailing him to Kentucky is likely a last resort but if you're out of options, he would have a nice home here and I'd be glad to adopt him!

    What part of Houston? My boys live in Kingwood and I drive up from the valley often.

    How old is he/she?

    How old? it does have a slightly larger comb but no wattles and it is very light colored. It could still be a girl.

    I think your jumping the gun by saying it's a he already. I would wait until the chick lays an egg or crows. Usually, it takes a while to find out the gender. Sometimes 16-18 weeks. I know it's a tough wait and the anticipation is horrible, but it's best to be patient. [​IMG]. I bought 2-3 chicks straight run and I can't have roosters either. Good luck.
