    Hi

    I've been "stalking" on the site for about 6 months since we started with our 4 chicks. Unfortunately one them turned out to be a rooster and our suburban NJ town doesn't allow them. So he got to retire upstate at a farm.

    It was sad to see him go. He was not only good looking but also chased the squirrels in the yard ;-)

    Good predator control then!! I have sold two of my polish Roos and was very sad to see them go. I'm quite lucky as we live in country side and have no laws on keeping them so have been able to keep two others for my two new breeding groups. My favourite bird in my flock is roo he called Poppet ( i know not vey manly) but he so friendly loves being with you even goes to sleep on your knee.
