    Are these friendly roos? I am trying to get rid of my Columbian Wyandotte Roo who turned evil and I'm looking for something a bit nicer

    some I handle and some decided they don't want to be bothered anymore [​IMG] . I have a single combed tufted/tailed araucana that I love, I just can't use him because of the single comb. The good thing about the araucana is they aren't real big, but not too small.....
    the La Fleche is nice and doesn't bother us at all, and I pet him in the coop frequently.

    eta- if you don't care about breed and won't have any other roos I have a boy that is so sweet but will only let him go to the right home. He has no girls for himself right now cuz the other boys won't share, not even his brother [​IMG] . He is a wheaten ameraucana, his toes are a little messed up from when he was a chick, he would run like a maniac and apparently the set up I had cause him to get caught. His brother only has 1 broken toe. He gets around perfectly fine and hasn't attacked anyone, he is a little more shy than he was because he is always getting chased away. I do pick him up frequently and he has never shown aggressiveness to myself or the kids.

    How old is he?
    If I can get rid of my columbian wyandotte I would definetly be interested. He would have the standard hens to himself, but would be able to see 2(hopefully reducing to one) bantam roos through chicken wire, but they are friendly and I dont think they would bother each other through the fence.
    How bad is the toe? Is it bad enough that he should stay contained to protect him from predators, or would he be fine free ranging during the day?

    I hatched him last summer. He gets along fine and free ranges now. I will try to get a pic of his feet and of him. I was going to keep him but I just don't have enough girls.....and waaaay too many roos.

    Have you gotten any pictures yet? I think I may have found a home for my mean roo, so I am interested if they are still available.
