    Any advice on what to do when you end up with too many roos?? I have a sweet little bantam roo that we definitely want to have around, but another began to crow this morning and decided to get VERY aggressive with the little man and we can't have that.

    Enola, NO!!!!! The chickens are not food, only their eggs! But I can't say that I'd mind selling or giving him away. Are people ever interested in just a roo?

    I agree, Craigslist is the way to go. I have 2 roos that I have rescued from homes that couldn't have them. As for the suggestion to eat the poor guy...shame on you! You know that is not the answer they wanted. [​IMG]
