    This is Reese now. He's turned out to be a gorgeous rooster but he is extremely loud. We are trying to find a home for him but I'm having a hard time parting with him.[​IMG]

    He is so pretty! Why do you have to give him away?

    He's SO LOUD! He's driving us nuts. He crow starting at about 3am and does about 5-10 cock-a doodle-doos in a row every 45 minutes until noon. We live on 9 acres, you'd think he wouldn't bother the neighbors but he does. I thought I could relocate him to my brothers house but he said he cull him. I thought I wouldn't have a problem with that but now that it comes down to it, I do. I don't know what to do.

    Hello BYC forum,

    I'm in need of some help. This past spring the preschool I work at hatched some chicks for the kids to experience. I fell in love with the first one hatched and the one teacher who carried out the hatching believed that the two I brought home were both female, but that was at 3 weeks of age. The first hatched turned out to be a Black Copper Maran rooster.

    He is beautiful and knows his name (Cooley) but I can't have a rooster.

    I'm looking for a new home for him. If you can help I would be so grateful. The woman that took all the other chicks, said she takes the roosters to a place where they kill the rooster.

    I live in Gilbert, AZ

    It looks like your sentence was cut off after "takes the rooster to a place..."

    I would love to have a BCM rooster but unfortunately I live in Australia.
    Try posting an add up with a picture of him on several online classifieds, I believe you guys use Craigslist a lot?

    Thank you for offering but I think the cost of postage and quarantine would cost more than my rooster. [​IMG]
