    Two more chicks have announced to the world they are males! These cannot stay. I have no outlet for these males at all, and I can't stand the thought of killing them for the sake of killing them.

    5 OEGB roo's-March hatch
    2 Mutt EE roo's about 5-6 weeks old

    Please! There are no auction houses to take them to, can't give them away on Craigslist, or in the free ad paper- nobody wants them!! I just don't have the heart to kill them, but I can't keep them.

    The only month it has never snowed in Wyoming is July, if that gives you an idea. The wind is TERRIBLE, I'm from Indiana and I had never seen a semi knocked clean on its side before I came here. If you want to live on any sort of acreage, you have to live way out in the boonies... The land itself is very dry and doesn't support any real vegetation other than prairie grass which is more of a weed anyway, unless you are rich and can irrigate. And winter snowstorms combined with the wind make huge drifts and can cut off some people for days. That being said, many parts of Wyoming are beautiful and there IS still land available, which is more than can be said for many places nowadays. Ok, here's my soapbox, I don't need it anymore... LOL

    Are you sure??? Shipping can't be that much for 1 tiny little roo...

I just want to be in the mountains far far away from ANYONE...... I also like the openess in your pic,but yea....like here.....not to much fun with the wind.....
    I have to build another section to my coop to be able to add another rooster and that wont happen until spring.........thank you anyway [​IMG]

    Nope, I've lived here 2 years and change. The DH is military. We are both from small town (Kendallville) Indiana. I don't hate Wyoming, but it's not what I'm used to. We have neighbors, ya just can't really see them in the pics. LOL It takes about 20-25 minutes to get into town. I guess not that bad for us. On snowy days like today, takes about an hour.

    I have had no luck trying to give these guys to anyone! I'm sure I will still have them in the spring [​IMG]

    I don't have the heart to kill a healthy animal. I just wished we had an auction close by to take him to...

    Oh ok, I wish I had a coop ready I would be tempted , as is I am adding 3 buff orp hens tomorrow and really cant separate them like I need to now.will have to do some temp makeshift separater inside the run ,suddening really cold here now and expecting our first ice sunday........ICE seems to be what we get most of...........I like snow better.... good luck with placing them...........do you have a craigslist.com you can log onto them and maybe someone at least a bit closer will come get them? Its really easy and free way to sell and give away things.
