    Yorker right here! [​IMG]

    Anyone know anyone that will take a rooster locally? I have a Rhode Island Red, Blue Orpington, and Speckled Sussex that I need to find new homes for [​IMG] They have great tempers but I have a small flock and I didn't want any roosters originally so I need to get rid of these three before they begin to fight each other. They are about 5 months old.

    Hi ~ I'm in Dover. I usually put mine on Craig's List. Sometimes I can sell them, but sometimes I have to give them away. I rehomed about 8 this summer. I am happily down to one right now. [​IMG]

    I have 4 acres. I was thinking the Royal Golden Palms or Red Bourbon.

    So I had NO motivation to build this brooder today...tomorrow is another day. LOL! I was able to salvage the top of the nesting box, so at least I'll have a nice lid for them. LOL!! I'm trying SO HARD to not candle my eggs.. I want to see if they are doing anything..We don't know if they are fertile, but she has a ton of roos, so we are under the assumption that at least 50% are fertile. I read my chicken book..and this morning was so cute because my 7 year old Jordan, took my book and said he wanted to take it to school today so he could read it on his own time...(I think he meant just look at the pictures, but whatever) LOL!! He's trying to learn about them and he wants to know what he has to do. LOL!!

    And a little humor since I've been on a turkey kick! LMAO!!

    This time of year it seems to be harder to get rid of them. Last month I had to give away a nice pure French Black Copper Marans and a pure Ameraucana just to get rid of them. I couldn't find any buyers. I guess I could have taken them over to Roots but I figured that it would cost more in time and gas then if I just gave them away. I just "refreshed" the CL ad every 48 hours to keep the ad new.
