    I'm about 3 hrs north of you (Roy, WA) but if you drive them up I can take them temporarily. My banty rooster has a fit about other roosters but I can rig some kind of temporary housing for them out in the barn. That way they can only fight through the pasture fence since the coop is outside that fence.

    It would be helpful if you were to include the numbers, breeds, etc of the boys - perhaps even pictures of them. Knowing specifics will be beneficial to those wishing to help you.

    Thank you! You are the first real lead I have gotten. Unfortunately, my starter is out on my car, so getting there is a bit tricky, but I will keep you In mind. I have 2 "broiler" roosters, but in excellent health because I slowed their growth and forced them to exercise even when they didn't want to, and now their legs are strong enough fish to support their huge bodies. I also have a mini red rooster Banty thing (RubyRubyRooo!), a white silkie (Ziggy Stardust), and a little Banty boy (Adama) and his hen (Eva) who crows just as loud as he does. I keep the last 3 generally indoors, so I am going to see if I can work out keeping those 3 here together somehow. The first 3 get along well and can all be housed together. Last night it got windy and loud and cold, and when I checked on the boys at 3:00am, RubyRooo and [​IMG]Ginger were sitting snuggled up...it was beautiful. BigFoot can't perch, but he likes affection...he's the biggest broiler, weighing in at 15lbs. I will try to attach some pictures.
