I got 6 chicks, but one is a rooster... in my area it seems no one wants one. He is 12 weeks old. I'm sorry about not reading through all of the posts, but can someone tell me - if we can't find someone else to take him before he starts crowing - when he does start making a lot of noise - what can I do? I only have 6 chickens, I'm new at this. If I have to cull him (but don't plan to do it often and do not have regular culling supplies), can you provide instructions on what I can do to and when I should do it? I grew up with people chopping their heads off and the bodies running around... not what I want. If I have to kill this one, how can I do it humanely and have it be edible? I can't believe I'm considering it, but at this point I need to know my options and be prepared. I am not sure yet if I am capable of doing this, but at the same time I need to determine based on what the instructions are if I can. I live in the city, and this is not something I plan to do often. How do you do it? Where do you put the blood, etc? I have had no responses from people to adopt him, but I know that soon he will crow and I have to do something. Thank you for your advice.
