    Looks like a Roo to me. I have had cockerals not crow til after they were a year, especially if they are non dominant birds.

    Cheers guys... well if it is a Roo i might give him/it a month or two to see what happens then maybe Cull him/It as well... unless it starts crowing then being in suburbia ill need to get rid of it...

    You need to ask LOCALLY whether anyone wants your cockerel. Check Craigslist for Melbourne?

    Since you have an item of poultry rather than a large marsupial, I would advertise a "Free cockerel" or "Free young Rooster" .... rather than a "free Roo" :) :)

    I doubt anyone reading this forum from the USA, Europe, Latin America, Asia or Africa needs a young rooster (shipped airmail?) from southeast of Melbourne. :) :)

    Outside of Down Under, we're all tuckered out with our own little cockerels..... Yes we have bins full o' cockerels at our flea markets but we don't have Kangaroos at our flea markets..... ;-) ;-)

    Hope I came off as funny. Not trying to be mean.
