    Hi All,
    I'm a newbie forum member, and a tender-hearted newbie chicken mom. I'm looking for some advice regarding re-homing a rooster. I want to make sure he goes to a good (GREAT) home, because I have raised him from a chick and we, as a family, care deeply about his well-being. Any suggestions?

    Hello! And [​IMG] so happy you decided to hang with us!

    I would say find a home that could provide 10-12 hens, and enough space. Also, a place that doesn't have "anti-rooster" neighbors. LOL

    G’Day from down under kkline [​IMG] Welcome!

    Good tips from redsoxs.

    I understand your concerns; having to find homes for roosters that I am not allowed to keep is the main reason I have very few hatches here.

    Unfortunately, there is a glut of roosters looking for homes and we have to face the cold hard truth that they could end up in a pot. However, some are lucky and get to live long lives on farms etc.

    I do hope that you are able to find a good home for your little man.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
