    We are in the process of culling 5 roosters today! I need the breed Identification ASAP of this Rooster before he possibly goes to the freezer. He's beautiful, and smaller in size. I'm guessings he's a bantam. His crow is very high pitched and the loudest crow I've ever heard. He wakes me up at 5 am every morning with his screeching awful noise, I can't handle him. But I keep having this feeling I should keep him, I can't get past how pretty he is. What should I do? Maybe knowing the breed would sway me either way. ANYONE in UTAH that would be interested in taking him off my hands, he's up for grabs....but you'll have to message me today!

    Looks to be a mixed breed to me. He is very beautiful & unique and I'd take him in a heart beat if you were close by. What a waste to eat him.

    It really is unfortunate that roosters are so beautiful. I hope you find someone in UTAH that will take him. [​IMG]
