In the Brooder
- May 11, 2012
I have a white leghorn (I think that is what he is) rooster that a farmer gave us when he was a day old when we purchased our silkies telling us it was a hen. Although we found sometime ago on here that he was a roo, we had planned to keep him as we love him and watched him grow. Sadly we have to rehome him. Unfortunately he is not getting along with the hens (he is the only rooster that we have) and they are pretty mean to him. He in turn takes it out on my silkies and is trying to peck out their eyes. He has been raised as a pet from day one here in MA free ranged and fed a veggie/corn/layer feed diet. Will not give him to ANYONE to let him be cooked. He must be kept alive!! He is so beautiful and always comes back to the coop to roost. I've attached a few pictures of our Benny. He is quite a handsome rooster.
