    Yesterday my mom and I went to the flea market and got you guessed it poke'mon cards! We got a rooster too! As soon as we got home he jumped out of the bag and there you go a half an hour of my life that I can never get back! Hers the amazing part (if your still reading) As soon as we let him out of our new chicken cage he got along great with my newly "feathered" Silkies and they let him into their flock. My sister named him Brice. Trust me I dont know [​IMG] Nelson Mandella for short. Hehe

  4. I just let my big buff orp roo out with the flock. I have him quarantined for over a month. He took off for the day after a brief few run ins with the other roos. I was glad to see him roosting when I went to close up the barn.

    I RARELY introduce a new bird, but this guy needed a home and he is beautiful. For some reason my roos seem to get along, but I think i am approaching a critical number. I now have 8 big roos and a bunch of little ones.

    I do take a few out each year for "mounting" at the taxidermist. The buff orp does not have good enough butt feathers so he has a home until his demise.

    Congrats on the roo!!! What breed? Do you have a pic of him? Also, yes, you always have to quarantine a new bird.

    Quote:I say you just have to go in there and toss a towel over him the lives of all of your chickens could depend on it. Even if he is apears to be in perfect health he could have hidden diseases and you could lose your whole flock. Thats why its so important to quarentine your birds.
