    Needs a home ASAP!
    Beautiful 13 week old rooster Hand raised from 1 day old. Due to having a children's service we can sadly no longer keep it as he is too much of a liability and we don't have space to seperate him. Was supposedly sexed at birth from hatchery, however, obviously they got it wrong!

    If you can get him on an airplane to the United STates, I will gladly take him and pay all expenses. You just have to do the leg work. I am an animal rescuer, have had two roosters. They are my favorite critter!! see my rescue site www.angelsindistress.com
    also my business site www.tendskin.com

    I know its a long flight but if there is no other choice, its better than euthanizing him. At least he has a chance. If he makes it, he will be loved and have a GREAT home and spoiled rotten!!

    Take care
    Steve

    That is actually a good idea, but it may be difficult. I'd recommend that the OP(if he/she are willing) to read up on import laws to the US. May be a long shot though, still if OP is willing it may be worth a try.

    I live in New Zealand, and imports of live birds are strictly prohibited sadly.

    I wish you luck in finding him a wonderful home @Unearthed wonder

    What is the name of the rooster sanctuary?
    One of our girls turned out to be a roo as well.
    We are keeping him but just in case it doesn't work out I'm collecting a list of sanctuaries in Victoria as a Plan C :)

    There is one in Packenham and the rooster man in Wesburn. We ended up calling the breeder who said because of his age he would not be culled but sold. When they saw how huge and healthy he was, ended up keeping him for breeding purposes there. They exchanged for 3 pullets.

    That's awesome, glad to hear he won't be culled. Very good outcome.

    Unfortunately I don't think my boy would be taken in for breeding purposes because he's a mixed breed. I guess for now he's staying in the suburbs :)
